All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value!
The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at
deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small
mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to
a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged.
Please consider this before ordering.

|Reviewed by Publishers Weekly Reviews (PW Reviews 2013 August #3)
As an ode to/sendup of "kids' corner" newspaper features, McSweeney's began publishing its own syndicated collection of puzzles, games, and teasers in 2011, with all the irreverent, cross-generational humor one would expect from such a project. Forty-four entries are collected in this book, with contributions from Kevin Cornell, Carson Ellis, Jon Klassen, Adam Rex, and many more. Mazes, "spot the difference" games, and connect-the-dots are common; many recurring elements are laugh-out-loud funny. Jon Scieszka offers an occasional science "korner" (step one for making a prehistoric fossil: "Place a large, dead animal at the bottom of the ocean"), and a "Cook with Your Face" segment presents bite-size recipes for "mouthshakes" and "salsa de la boca" ("Chew thoroughly, until ingredients are fully mixed"). From newly minted words and dress-up Rasputin dolls to internal organ trading cards, it's more than enough to keep hipster parents and their kids entertained. Ages 8–up. (Oct.)[Page ].
