Cathy Allis Millhauser : Sterling Publications, March 2003 : Spiral-bound
Puns can make you laugh or groan, but when they're clues to these challenging and fun crossword puzzles, they'll make you smile with satisfaction. Can you find the five-letter word for "a race that's always a tie"? (Answer: ASCOT.) How about the three-letter word for "perform a scull operation"? (Answer: ROW.) If you can get those in short order, how about moving on to a 10-letter word for "small fries"? (That answer is MICROCHIPS.) Most of the puzzles are built around themes with several related words such as vegetables, insects, or Dr. Seuss books. But watch out--the vegetables may be mixed; the insects are puns; and some of the Dr. Seuss puzzle answers include FIGURE OF SNEETCH, GRINCH MEAN TIME, and LAUNCHED A WOCKET. You can find the answers in back, but they're scattered around to make it harder to cheat.

Henry Hook : Sterling, November 2003 : Spiral-bound
These clever word games will really make your brain work overtime to come up with the solutions. Each one has a little twist, something unusual to keep crossword and other puzzle lovers on their toes. Around and Abouts will get heads spinning and searching for the letters that fit in a circular grid; "around" answers go counterclockwise, while the "about" clues overlap them in a clockwise fashion. Work it out from Tops to Bottoms, where two letters fit into every square; Crushword also crunches several letters - sometimes more than four - into each grid. Answers to Weavers clues form a continuous chain, with the first letter fitting into a central starred space; the next four go into adjoining numbered spots. The rest shuttle back and forth across and around the diagram. Plus: Quadrants, Crazy Eights, Catching Some Z's, Siamese Twins, Honeycombs, and other great puzzlers!
