My daughter loves puzzles and I think this is an ideal book for her. The puzzles are aimed at children currently at Key Stage 2 level and there are crosswords based on a number of different tools of the English Language. There are puzzles based on nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, synonyms and verbal reasoning at two different levels. Before each set of crosswords there is a section on, for example, what is a noun? noun formation? which would act as a reminder for the child as to what they have previously learnt, followed by a puzzle about noun formation and then a section inviting you to have a go at sentence construction using the nouns from the puzzle.

I really like the idea of the book, a great revision tool for what has already been learnt at school. There are answers in the back of the book for us parents who have forgotten all we learnt at school.

A great book for both children who want to practice their new school and for teachers who want a fun resource for English language lessons.

Thank you to Michael from TheSchoolRun forum for sending me the book to review.
