BEASTLY PUZZLES: A BRAIN-BOGGLING ANIMAL GUESSING GAME

Published by Kids Can Press, 2019

Written by me and illustrated by the astonishing Byron Eggenschwiler, BEASTLY PUZZLES asks if readers to guess an animal from a list of parts. It might seem easy enough. But solving the animal puzzles is deviously, outrageously, almost impossibly tricky!

The thirteen animals are easily recognizable, like polar bears, snails, ostriches, pufferfish. But the clues are brain-bogglingly weird and wonderful—feather dusters, sewing thread, bodice laces, billiard balls, mermaid tears, egg cozies, oh my!
