Some are easy enough for kids, but most will require an adult mind to solve. I like that most of them are poems, the rhyming is well done.

 The Riddle Chest, by Sef Daystrom, is a short book comprised of fifty different riddles to really make you think.  The levels range from easy to hard, meaning that some of the riddles can be extremely thought provoking.  There were many of the riddles that I found too hard to decipher, finding them to be a little more challenging then my level of riddle solving, but all in all this was still a fun read.         I thoroughly enjoyed this book, even if I wasn't able to figure out every single riddle.  The ones I did solve I found myself excited about.  I think that this is a neat concept, and could be fun for all ages.  I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a challenge and I would definitely read another like it.  Good job to the author.

This is a really good book. And to those saying it does not give you the answers to to the riddles, it does to! They are in the back of the book. It gives a key that you can decode it if you want and if you don't want to do that, there is a normal decoded key right after the codes. The riddles in this book are real braintwisters and are quite fun to do.

First, think, What kind of person lives in disguise? Someone who tells naught but lies. Then, think of the middle of middle and the end of end. This tiny creature would not be a friend. Then, think of what sometimes you say when looking for a hard to find word. Last but not least, think of a creature you would not be willing to kiss. (Thanks for reading! Respond the Melina for more answers and riddles. Bye!)

All the people who say "The jokes weren't funny" YOU ARE AN IDIOT. This is a riddle book, not a jokebook. They're not supposed to be funny, they're supposed to be challenging. (Free sword art)
