Low Price Guarantee
We Take School POs
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 Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2016 Spring)
Number puzzles, riddles, coin games, card tricks, mazes, and other engaging brain teasers encourage readers to practice and refine their logical thinking, visualization, and numeracy skills. Classic problems pop up, including the river crossing challenge, matchstick puzzles, and cube folding. Some puzzles require common household items (e.g., dice, scissors, spaghetti). Helpful hints and answers are appended to the straightforward text and clear visuals. Ind. [Review covers these Brain Benders titles: It's Only Logical, Not So Ordinary, and Think Outside the Box.]

Gr 6–9—Can you solve the pouring problem? How are you at brain chains? This unusual series challenges perception and thwarts assumptions with optical illusions and seemingly simple activities. Memory games, pencil puzzles, and magic tricks allow readers to exercise numeracy and logic skills in fun and fascinating ways. Answer pages offer solving tips and/or solutions when the problems grow too taxing. While all of the activities work well, the author seems more comfortable with explaining math concepts—devoting a whole page to a good explanation of probability—than science, explaining why some optical illusions work but not others. Scrupulously accurate graphic illustrations (with some photos) are key to the success of these four sharp little books. VERDICT Shelve under "Spock"—there are sure to be takers for this set.
