I am a Jigsaw: Puzzling Poems to Baffle your Brain

From acrostics and riddles to kennings and paradiddles, this is a fun anthology of puzzling poems which also encourages children to have a go at writing poetry themselves. I am a Jigsaw is perfect for teachers who want to introduce different forms of poetry to pupils, and ideal for parents looking to entertain their children at home with puzzles and riddles.

Including puzzle poems ranging from easy to difficult, different poem styles and lots of humour, join Roger Stevens as he helps young readers crack the codes and learn to write their own puzzling poems that will baffle even the greatest mind.

Our Review Panel says...

A collection of poems for children who love solving brainteasers and cracking codes. The illustrated anthology includes riddles, acrostics, kennings and paradiddles (you’ll have to read the book if – like me- you didn’t already know what a paradiddle poem is…). There is also a section of the book designated to how to write different types of puzzle poems. A brilliantly fun introduction to poetry designed to get puzzle-loving children engaged with a variety of poetic forms.
