and other word-play riddles

Harcourt Brace
September 1991
Ages:  4-8

Young readers are challenged by fifteen word-play riddles based on the concept of finding words hidden within other words.  The title, front endpapers, and the first riddle should give the reader a clue for the riddles that are to come:  "Why did the musician find a dog in his TRUMPET?"  Answer on the next page:   "Because he always finds a PET in his trumpet."  The word that contains the hidden word is always bigger and bolder, making it easier to search for.   Bernard Most's hidden word-play books help make learning how to read fun.
