Riddle Me This

Riddle Me This!: Riddles and Stories to Challenge Your Mind
by Hugh Lupton, illustrated by Sophie Fatus.

Recently released in paperback, I never saw the hardcover version so this is a new book to me.  This book is filled with great riddles from the classic ones to more modern versions.  The illustrations make it child-friendly, but this book is perfect for riddle lovers of all ages.  In fact, we spent the evening last night reading the riddles out loud and trying to figure them out as a family.  I can’t think of a nicer way to spend an evening. 

I love riddle books rather than joke books.  They really make you think and the groan when you are completely baffled and the answer is discovered is very satisfying.  This book is a winner for kids who enjoy a good riddle and love to think.

Wizarding World

Orlando will be home to a new theme park based on the Harry Potter books!  Universal Studios expects to open the park in 2009.  There is just something magical about being able to experience Hogwarts and Rowling’s world.  I probably should feel more cynical about this.  I know it is sure to be expensive and  filled with cheap but expensive toys that no child can live without. But still, I would love to see Hogwarts…
