Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New Yorker cartoons plus puzzles: what's not to love in this brilliant mash-up? It's a one-of-a-kind collection that combines the sharp wit of the magazine's enormously popular cartoons with pure puzzling pleasure. Find the missing word in a cartoon's caption by completing a crossword or unscrambling an acrostic. Fill in the characters' blank "thought balloons," or match a cartoon with the decade it appeared. You'll be laughing nonstop as you solve!

Synopsis:

This compact book of geometric puzzles will have you cutting up—shapes, that is! Each puzzle features an irregular geometric figure; to find the correct answer, solvers must "dissect" and divide that shape into two, three, or four portions of equal size and shape.

About the Author

Eric Harshbarger was initially a mathematician by education and a computer engineer by trade, but now makes his living building large sculptures and mosaics out of plastic toy bricks as well as designing puzzles of all types. He resides in Auburn, AL, with his cat, Faux Pas, and his Internet “home” is ericharshbarger.org.
