What makes these 56 word search puzzles so extraordinary, so completely AWESOME? For the first time ever, every single one comes in a picture shape that relates to the puzzle's theme. So, you'll get such shapes as an ice cream cone (for "Here's the Scoop"); a bowling ball and pin ("Right Up Your Alley"); a snowman ("Snowed In"); and a boat ("For Sail"). And there's more: some of the puzzles have rebuses and other gimmicks, and every single puzzle contains a secret message. To see what that message says, go to the grid, find and circle all the phrases on the word list, then read all the uncircled letters from left to right, top to bottom, to spell out a "punny" answer to a riddle, humorous thought, or fun fact. (The letters are in order--but you have to figure out how the letters get divided into words.) That's what makes this collection a real, Mensa-level challenge!
