Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-5?An engaging, attractively designed collection of 26 original riddles, many in rhyme. "I have five arms but no head./I sleep in a water bed./I never see what I am named after" (a starfish); "I'm tall and thin./I stand at attention/in the kitchen/with all my friends./At dinner, hands throw us/into a boiling pot./We go limp with shock/and are quickly eaten up" (a strand of spaghetti). The answers appear upside down in small print at the bottom of each page. Humorous, delicate, detailed watercolor illustrations offer clues to each puzzle.?Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY

From Booklist

Ages 6^-9. A relief from the puns and groaners that fill most riddle books, these three-line verses recall more ancient queries--the question rhymes from Mother Goose, perhaps, or the riddle game between Bilbo Baggins and Gollum in The Hobbit. Here's one: "Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz! / I have ten thousand teeth / but I never go to the dentist" (zipper). Blegvad's imaginative watercolors illustrate the word puzzles with delicacy and charm, offering subtle hints but leaving room for guesswork. A quiet, satisfying book of riddling rhymes.
