If you find yourself laughing out loud and being challenged, perplexed, and stumped, then we're doing our job with this puzzle book from Adams Media, The Everything® Kids' More Puzzles Book.

In the dictionary, you'll find that the word “puzzle” is defined as “a test of cleverness or a toy that exercises your mind.”We like that definition because it describes what we set out to do in The Everything® Kids' More Puzzles Book. We're sure you'll enjoy the challenge and fun of the 100 puzzles you'll find inside. Adding to the enjoyment is lots of interesting information, sprinkled in among the games. You will be learning without even knowing it! Check out Chapter 10; did you know that out of the 40,000 species of spider known to man, only 1 is vegetarian?

This is a great book to take on a road trip or family vacation or even to keep you company in the smallest room in the house! With connect-the-dots games, mazes, and spelling quizzes, you'll be entertained for hours.

As an added bonus, keep your eyes open for Max, our puzzle-loving cat who makes himself at home wandering onto puzzle pages. Sometimes he's seeing what's going on; other times he just wants to curl up and take a nap. See if you can spot how many times he shows up in the book. But make sure it's Max, because there are other felines sprinkled through the book as well! You'll know Max by the 3 stripes on his tail.

To get you started, here's a memory puzzle you can do with your eyes closed! First, look at the scene for 5 seconds and memorize as much as you can. Now, cover it with your hand and see if you can answer the questions below.

How many balloons is Max holding? What is on the floor — a baseball or football? What time does the clock say?

Now that you're warmed up, why not turn the page, sharpen your pencil (and your mind), and get puzzling! Enjoy!
