It will give readers a chance to try several different types of puzzles and games and bring a smile to their faces when they check the answers at the back of the book. This is a perfect gift for someone about to board a plane or train or car for vacation. There are so many choices of crosswords, word finds, and fill-ins that many delightful hours of enjoyment can be anticipated. Will Shortz, the editor of the New York Times Crossword Puzzle and of NPR fame, notes that the author has been a puzzlehead since childhood. No wonder she put together this great collection.
