New York Times Little Red and Green Book of Crosswords 4.6 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.

Saw this in Good Housekeeping magazine as a suggested gift for those who spend their commute doing crossword puzzles. The compact size and solid quality construction of the spiral-bound volume are ideal not only for the commuter but also for the arm chair seated fan. The little book fits comfortably in one hand, the clues are all on one page, the puzzle on the opposite. Fitting with the Christmas theme, difficulty is indicated by fir tree shapes (ranging form one to three) and the last five of the 200 puzzles have a Christmas theme. Absolutely love it! Now I want to get the NYT Little Black and White Book of Crosswords!

I love the challenge of Will Shortz crosswords. I also like the organization of the book with different difficulty levels. The best of all is that this is a somewhat compact hard cover book that travels with me in the car.

I bought this little book and it goes from easy to difficult. It let's you know which puzzle is easy and which is difficult. A great value. Easy to use. I loved it.
