More than 100,000 copies of One-Minute Mysteries and Brain Teasers and Return of the One-Minute Mysteries and Brain Teasers have been sold (combined), and now Sandy Silverthorne and John Warner offer an all-new collection of family-friendly lateral thinking puzzles.
Each page includes an unusual scenario that ends with a question for readers to answer as well as a delightful cartoon that depicts a laughably incorrect assumption. To find the one satisfying answer for each puzzle, readers must throw out all preconceived notions and be open-minded, flexible, and creative. Increasingly revealing clues for each puzzle are included in the back of the book, as are the solutions.
These riddles are challenging enough for adults yet appropriate for detectives of all ages. Individual readers, families, and groups can enjoy hours of fun solving them and learning to think outside the box.
