Classic Cryptograms (Classic Series) by Leslie Billig, Helen Nash, Dorothy Masterson, Shawn Kennedy
Can you decipher the quotations hidden in simple substitution codes?
These cryptograms are nuggets of wit and wisdom from such luminaries as Mark Twain, Bill Cosby, Queen Victoria, Bruce Lee, and Yogi Berra. Highly entertaining, the puzzles get harder as you go, so if you get stuck, take a look at the solving hints that may help you come up with the answers.
Cracking the code is fun. Reading the quotations is just as enjoyable!
