    Terry Stickels is 'TOP DOG' for puzzles

    These frame games are fun,challenging,and educational. I found these in the store and purchased them for my children. Even though the ages and interests are very different they all enjoyed the challenge of trying their skill at them...it became a contest over Holidays and a family project to figure these out. Hope to see more work from this brilliant man.

    Tons of Great Teasers for Puzzlers of All Skill Levels

    Sterling Publishing wisely placed the answers to these 159 teasers parallel to and inconspicuously by the spine of the book. The answer to the teaser on the 4th page is near the spine on the 6th page, etc. You have to go out of your way to find the answers, and this also allowed a very large number of puzzles to be nicely fit into a small, inexpensive book (that just happens to be in the shape of a toilet seat). These types of puzzles are very popular. I have heard them called such things as Punzzles, Thinking Caps, Thinkerobics (in another Terry Stickels book), but Terry has aptly named them Frame Games, due to the nice frames he places them in. Some of the answers will just jump out at you, while others you'll have to dig for. You are sure to pick up a few terms and phrases in the process of tackling these problems. Terry's Frame Games have become famous from his USA Weekend column and elsewhere. Buy this book and enjoy the addiction!
