What do the words "scallop," "cider," and "angora" have in common? They're all answers in the entertaining series of word games featured in this collection of cleverly constructed brain-teasers. Puzzle lovers who prefer to play games with words rather than numbers will find hundreds of pleasurable challenges in this fun-filled book. Words lie waiting — hidden in 72 different grids filled with haphazardly placed letters of the alphabet. The object is to find and circle groups of letters that spell words (vertically, horizontally, diagonally, forwards, and backwards) from certain topic areas: dinosaurs, U.S. presidents, careers, fabrics, languages, flowers, states, baseball, domestic cats, hot drinks, shells, and many more. Ideal for older children as well as adult game enthusiasts, the puzzles are presented in ascending order of difficulty. Solutions for the frazzled and frustrated appear at the end.
