From the people who brought you The Klutz Book of Magic, The Klutz Book of Juggling, and The Klutz Book of Open Heart Surgery comes a terrific book for your laymen pals who like puzzles. Jerry Slocum has assembled a huge variety of puzzles: there are word puzzles, tangrams, mazes, jigsaw puzzles, stick puzzles, lateral thinking puzzles, pencil and paper puzzles, and wire puzzles. Sam Lloyd is represented with two puzzles: the "Mules and Riders," and "Get Off the Earth."
The book is very cleverly packaged, and all the necessary props are included in pouches which are bound into the book. There is a section of hints, if you want a clue but not the whole answer, and the entire layout is lively and fun. I'm not big into puzzles, but I had a great time playing with this book. It would make a terrific Christmas gift.
(And if you look very carefully, you might be able to find a picture of Jay Marshall.)
