This is a collection of 75 fun, challenging, and satisfying wordplay riddles! A drastically different yet essential counterpart to my first collection of riddles, "Of Course!", these are easy-to-remember and fun-to-share word riddles that describe some object, thing, or place. Typically they follow a limerick-inspired rhyming structure and sometimes have pretty out-of-the-box answers.
This book is filled with the classics that many riddle-loving people will be familiar with, and also filled with many new and original riddles that you can be sure you've never heard before. The difficulty ranges from easy to quite difficult, but never are these riddles so cryptic and "tricky" that you won't be able to figure out the answer with enough thought. Even the simple ones feel good to solve. They are designed to be satisfying, tight, and fulfilling. It is my hope that not even one of these riddles leaves a feeling of "well that was stupid" or "that doesn't make any sense". They are meant to be written so that as soon as you think of the solution, you are completely sure that that is the correct answer!
In case you are unfamiliar with this style of riddle, here are a few classic examples from the "Classic Riddles" section of the book that display the range of wordplay and styles. I don't want to spoil anything so the solution to these riddles can be found in the book! You can also use the "Look Inside" feature that Amazon provides to get a preview of more riddles and see if this format is something you will have fun with.
