New. This book grew out of author`s many years of experience as a professional librarian working with children. His exchange of riddles back and forth over the year resulted in a substantial collection which forms the core of this book. Working with the children, the author found out that riddles are based on language and logic; that to tell a riddle, one need to communicate with someone capable of understanding what he/she is saying that there are no rules to riddles and English lays an important role since it has large number of words with more than one meaning and these words proceeds a vast reservoir of material from which riddles may be developed. Hence the author has provided this collection which will enable children of any age group to understand and enhance their intelligence. It is a collection which contains simple riddles and complex ones, outright gags and mental puzzlers, puns and conundrums, classic riddles and contemporary one. You will find answers to such questions as: 1. How do mice kiss? 2. Why did the Projector blush? 3. What goes "clomp, clump, clump, squish", and riddles about everything under the sun. It is a book will provide endless hours of amusement and also, will help to stimulate intellectual growth. Contents: -Introduction 1. Warm Ups 2. Quickies 3. Ask You Friends-If you Dare! 4. Sick! 5.
