Gr 5 UpA collection of 400 cryptograms based on famous quotes. Each one includes the name of the person who coined it. The solutions and an index by subject and attribution are included. These puzzles are pretty straightforwardmost of them can be solved without too much effort. A very short introduction gives a description of cryptograms, but not many hints for solving them. A good selection for the puzzle shelf where this type of book is popular.JoAnn Rees, Sunnyvale Public Library, CA
