Your first glimpse of my imminent (and eminent) kids' book called Wordburger, due to appear in late November. Click here and you can read more about the project, and the book's stealthy plan to skill young minds in the cryptic arts.
Further down the publisher's page you can also find some puzzle sheets to download. Why not run off a few copies and road-test them on any kids in your life? The level of difficulty is aimed at late primary, though a cluey youngster below that band should make good headway. (I'd be interested to get your feedback.)
Sometimes it's tough to make an easy puzzle. Anyone care to 'extend' any other of the downloads' puzzles, or perhaps create a delectable kid-friendly challenge of their own? See how you fare, as we play it simple and stylish for a day, while I'm recovering from Canberra's barnstorm. (And look for a standard post tomorrow.)
