Synopsis

*A brand-new book of amazing, mind-boggling riddles, from the much-loved Gyles Brandreth, author of What's Black and White and Red All Over*



When first I appear I seem mysterious,

But when I am explained I am nothing serious.



What am I?



A RIDDLE!



Was that too easy? How about what goes ninety-nine BONK (a centipede with a wooden leg)? Or which famous book was written by Charles Chickens (Great EGGspectations, of course!).



In this book you'll find a whole host of amazing riddles. Some will get you head scratching, some will make you laugh, and all are a lot of fun.



Plus find out some brilliant riddling facts, and top tips on how to solve the trickiest brain-teasers.



Written by Master of Funny and Collector of Riddles Gyles Brandreth, this is the ultimate, riotous Book of Riddles!
