Riddles are an essential component of Hispanic humor and folklore. 101 Spanish Riddles presents a fun and entertaining way to expand your knowledge of both Spanish language and culture. Some riddles rhyme, some play on words, some require lateral thinking, and some provide the answer in the question. Organized into ten thematic sections, each riddle is accompanied by a humorous illustration, an English translation, and the answer. In many cases, a dialogue or narrative presents the key vocabulary in a contemporary everyday context, for which translations are included at the back of the book.
