Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-A delightful collection of over 200 riddles, grouped by subject. A brief introduction gives a definition of ``riddle'' and some historical background. Answers are printed upside down and backwards, in smaller type, directly below each question. Joseph Rosenbloom's Zaniest Riddle Book in the World (Sterling, 1985) is similarly organized; however, Chicken's larger format, use of white space, and bold lettering are more inviting to young readers. Tiegreen's black-and-white cartoons, which appear on each page, are humorous and clever. A helpful subject index is included, as well as a list of additional sources. ``What did one library book say to the other?'' ``Can I take you out?'' Be sure to take this one out for fun!-Mary Ann Bursk, Bucks County Free Library, Levittown, PA
