WORDS ARE FUNNY

A riddle book which somehow manages to do a lot of trick things with sounds and looks and meanings of words, so that almost painlessly a bit of etymology seeps through. Through original guessing word games, association words games, and original riddles (not in the routine cormy humor vein) one gets some new counting rhymes, one gets a feel of color in the pattern of words themselves. Cartoon style drawings by Vera Neuman liven the pages. Offset process.
