Read perhaps 1 a day with you kid and try to figure each one out. Some are logical, others are just plain silly. Either way you will have fun trying to figure them out.

This book was recommended to me by a coworker because of my penchant for telling funny stories and riddles. Honestly, I dish it out more easily than I take it (I hate to feel dumb!) but these were pretty fun. The ones that I missed didn't (for the most part) make me feel very dumb because I thought the "answers" were just kind of silly.

I am starting to get more and more enchanted by these riddle-folktales~

My favourite one from this book is the folktale No.8: "Never Seen, Never Heard" which relates to Aesop of Babylon.
Stories that make you think. I read a short story, solve the puzzle and then feel clever, or my children feel clever with themselves.
Love these short story/ if I ever come across one of them on my travels I will know how to answer.

Not as great as the first collection of folktales. I was disappointed.
Great for read-alouds and illustrated by peter Sis.
I thought these books were absolute genius.
