Overview

A truck driver goes three blocks in the wrong direction down a one-way street...without breaking the law! How can that be? That's just one of the many brain bafflers, knotty problems, mind teasers, and tricky tactics that will have you scratching your head and puzzling it out. Warm up on a few easy ones...but then be very prepared to use your smarts. Give this little conundrum your best shot: Laura won a prize in a raffle. It had been donated by a woman's clothing store. "Great!" she exclaimed happily. "I know just the person to share it with!" What did she win? Happy solving. Answers: 1. The truck driver was walking. 2. The prize was a pair of gloves. Laura only had one arm, and she knew someone else who was in the same situation. 96 pages, 23 b/w illus., 4 x 5.
