K-Gr 4-A delightful collection of folktales and riddles from around the globe. Some of the selections may be familiar to children, and some will be new, but all will challenge them to see the world in new ways. Included are "The Sphinx's Riddle," "The Mad Hatter's Riddle" from Alice in Wonderland, and "Gollum's Riddle" from The Hobbit, as well as a brainteaser from Jonathan Swift. "Two Travelers in Arkansas" (the United States), "The Snake of Dreams" (Russia), and "King John and the Bishop of Canterbury" (England) are among the stories that present readers with enigmas to solve. Source notes and an answer key appear at the end. Fatus's ink-and-watercolor illustrations are charming and childlike. Ranging in size from partial page to full spread, the vibrantly colored pictures give readers hints that will help them answer each riddle. This book makes a perfect choice for one-on-one sharing, and will also be enjoyed by independent readers.-Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
