There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Two pages are okay and the next two pages have overlapped text which makes you dizzy. The entire book has the same issue. I’ve requested for the refund but I like the contents of the book but not sure whether the other copies are all good.

We received perfectly logical and the 1st logic puzzle we completed has errors. Disappointing as I was doing this with my 8 year old and she could not understand why the answers were incorrect based on info given. Pg 38 at the carnival. The answers for favorite ride for Mariana and Julia are switched based on clue 5. Also, based on clue 6 - it says Daniel wanted something hot - either soft pretzel and corn dog are left - both of which can be hot. There is no way to determine which it should be. I expected with a book geared for kids this would have been clearer.
- Fun puzzles
- great for kids or adults trying to maintain/develop cognitive ability (I am 31 and recovering from a brain injury)
- a few puzzles that are incorrect or don’t have enough information to properly solve it
- some of the crosswords are printed too small and are hard to read (but the rest of the book is plenty large print)
- one of the crosswords is so outdated (even though the book is published in 2019) there is no way a kid today would know the answers. I’m 31 and didn’t know the answers because of the old fairy tales
Crossword, sudoku, logic puzzles, find the pattern, decoding etc.
The pages are a good quality and colorful, not cheaply made.
My 6 year old is thoroughly enjoying this. He definitely needs help solving some of these so it's a great family activity for us. Some of the puzzles even stumped the parents 🙂 my husband and I often find ourselves engrossed in trying to solve some of the brain teasers which are the most difficult puzzles at the end of each chapter.
I’m afraid that once we finish this, it’s going to be hard to find other books to match this one!
Love that it keeps us away from the screen for hours!
