Every puzzle contains all 26 letters of the alphabet, but you have to know more than just your ABCs to solve these cleverly constructed grids. From "Straight As" to "Grabbing Some Zs," this crossword compendium entices puzzle lovers with 72 alphabet-related brainbusters. Try your hand at any of the 26 themed puzzles, each based on one letter of the alphabet, but be prepared for a twist. Take on the "3-H Club" puzzle and triple your task, finding solutions like "head honcho" and "high-handed," with 3 Hs instead of just one. Or tackle the "B Movies" puzzle, with witty clues and solutions where one letter makes all the difference--What's a 1955 film about a Biblical monster? Beast of Eden, of course! And for those who like their puzzles straight up, there are 46 themeless options to choose from as well.
