    Fun for 10 year olds

    I love all different types of puzzles and was thrilled to receive this as a gift for Christmas. As I have gone through the book, I have been disappointed with the difficulty of the puzzles. My 10 year old is capable of completing most of them. The variety and type of puzzle are great, just wish they were more challenging.
