A collection of riddles, word puzzles, enigmas, conundrums, bafflers, logogriphs, teasers, verbal jigsaws, and quiz questions from around the world

Blackwell North Amer
This Little Book of wonder, certain to delight, edify, and astonish, has a serious premise at its core: to rescue riddles from obscurity and return them to their rightful literary status alongside myths, legends, fairy tales, maxims, and proverbs. One of the earliest types of folk wisdom, the riddle was a favorite form of wordplay for many of history's greatest minds, from Aristotle to James Joyce.
In Riddle Me This, Phil Cousineau has collected every form of riddle - word puzzles, enigmas, conundrums, bafflers, logogriphs, teasers, verbal jigsaws, quiz questions, and more - from around the world. Whatever their label, these mental exercises are all "ingenious questions in search of clever answers."
