Welcome to the world of captivating lateral thinking puzzles! These tricky little conundrums always have more than meets the eye: to unravel them, you need to think completely outside the box. Solvers must decide which of the facts in each puzzle are important and which are red herrings; they even have to project into the future and guess what crucial details have yet to be revealed! That’s what makes these challenges so entertaining. They provide hours of speculation and amusement, help improve readers’ reasoning skills, and expand the imagination. There’s a wide range of difficulty to choose from, and great illustrations plus a wacky sense of humor add to the fun. A clues section will help out if you get stuck.
