Publisher Description

Unlike conventional crosswords, these quirky puzzles from former puzzle editor of “The New Yorker”, Fraser Simpson, use clues that combine straightforward definitions with clever wordplay. For example, 'Hit friends back' is the clue for SLAP, which means 'hit' but is also PALS reversed ('friends back'). It also includes a plethora of homophones, hidden words, charades, deletions, pig Latin and much more. These mind-twisting puzzles are sure to give hours of head-scratching, pencil-chewing fun.
