Mighty Mini Cryptic Crosswordsby Henry Hook
These mini puzzles are mighty challenging! If you've done only traditional crosswords, these "cryptics" will work out some new mental muscles. What makes them different? The clues themselves don't appear to make sense on the surface. That's because each one has two parts: a straight definition, and a cleverly hidden bit of wordplay (like an anagram, a charade, a homophone, a reversed word, and more). For example: "Earthworms wiggling in Pennsylvania school (10)" is SWARTHMORE (an anagram of EARTHWORMS). These 60 stumpers from cryptic master Henry Hook elevate crosswords to a new level! The author lives in Brooklyn, NY. 160 pages, 4 3/16 x 5 1/4.
