Format: Paperback
Mad Tausig VS I3P Interplanetary Puzzling Peace Patrol, with puzzles by Ben Tausig and pictures by Goopymart is a new, challenging book of puzzles for upper elementary and middle school kids. With the theme of the reader being a recent graduate of the Interplanetary Puzzling Peace Patrol, the first assignment is to stop Mad Tausig. The puzzles relate to the theme and some are quite fun and difficult, requiring mental diligence. A fun book, perfect for Christmas stockings.

Format: Paperback
Mad Tausig vs The Interplanetary Puzzling Peace Patrol is a puzzle book for kids. Humorous black-and-white illustrations and a whimsical space-mystery and adventure story frame this collection of puzzles created by Ben Tausig, whose crosswords have appeared in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Chicago Reader, among other newspapers. Though crossword puzzles are the primary feature, a medley of other brain-teasers round out Mad Tausig vs The Interplanetary Puzzling Peace Patrol. Answers and solutions to the puzzles are in the back. A literacy-building, consumable book ideal for young people on car trips or for rainy-day fun.
