Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-4Another fine addition to the Maestros' list of riddle and wordplay books. This one will be a stretch for young readers, but the funny, colorful illustrations add contextual clues. The subjects of the riddles will be familiar to most readers-trains, bugs, mice, fish, boats. A few words are technical or unusual and will need explanation. Most of the selections involve plays on words, but some are relatively straightforward- "What animal is good at hitting a baseball?" "A bat." Children will love the silly pictures, laugh at the riddles, enjoy sharing them with others, and expand their vocabularies all at the same time.Mary Ann Bursk, Bucks County Free Library, Levittown, PA
