This collection of original riddles is unlike any other because the main words in each answer sound exactly alike, but have different meanings. Zany illustrations add to the fun and provide clues to the solutions. And the newly designed full-color cover makes the package even more appealing. So dig in--and see why you should play with your words (not with your food)!
