This book of Homonym Puzzles is courtesy of Laura Beck, ‘an 87-year-old retired remedial reading teacher who early in her career found that the best way to inspire her students to learn was to challenge them with games. Her favorite brain teaser? Words which sound the same but have different definitions - Homonyms. With help from her producer (and grandson-in-law), David Goldenberg, and the professional cartoonists Benjamin Schwartz and Corey Pandolph, Beck turned her riddles into visually stunning puzzles that challenge readers to find the homonym pair linking each set of drawings.’
As in the other Homonym game this HD version has the same challenging content. In this particular set of puzzles the instructions are carefully outlined so that everyone knows how to interact with the Kindle. This HD version is in FULL COLOR, offers two pictures and challenges the player to select the letters at the base of the puzzle to define the similarities in words that sound the same yet are completely different. For example, fowl ball and foul ball, ants prey and aunts pray, sword and soared, yolks and yokes, serf and surf – they become a bit more complex as the book moves along. The player is able to immediately check whether the letters chosen represent the correct choice and if so the next puzzle awaits. If not, then the game takes you back to the puzzle you flunked for a second try. There are 100 puzzles to poke your ingenuity.
These are fun and challenging and just may become habit forming! Grady Harp, December 13
For example, the cover of the book shows 'peek' on the left and 'peak' on the right. So in the answer choices you would see [p../p..] which are the first letters of 'peek and peak'. There would also be three other choices of letters that are unrelated to the answer. Some of the puzzles are quickly obvious, others you have to think about carefully. The illustrations are great and well done.
I like doing this and found that it works great on my Kindle Fire and is also available on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. It's nice that you can have instant answers.
I'm not sure why it has been created as a book instead of an app. I think making it a book forces it to give part of the answer. But maybe as an app it wouldn't be as versatile on e-readers and computers that use e-reader software.
There is another version that is not in color Homonym Puzzles (Interactive Puzzlebook for E-readers) (for only 99¢) that works for e-ink readers.
Recommended for challenging your brain and word knowledge.
This is a lot more challenging than you might think. Some of the pictures you can quickly come up with one solution but the second one is a lot harder. But, if you want to keep your mind sharp, working these puzzles will help do that.
This is just like the Homonym Puzzles except the pictures are now in full color. Now you can get a better idea what the pictures are with your HD tablet. It takes the puzzles to the next level.
This was really easy to operate on my Android Tablet and easy to figure out how to navigate the book. This book would make a great Christmas gift for the puzzle lover in your life.
