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.’
In this particular set of puzzles the instructions are carefully outlined so that everyone knows how to interact with the Kindle. This version is in crisp black and white, 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
