I was sent this book in exchange for my honest review.

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book, I’d heard so much about it!  If you love classics, if you love books, literary fiction, puzzles, coloring, and challenges, then this book is for you.  It’s all about literary things/books.

There are word searches, crosswords, dot puzzles, mazes, matching and other games and… coloring.  There are thought provoking challenges, things that peak your interest with tidbits of information provided so that you’ll want to research more.  It’s a wonderful idea and about time too! I would say it’s for middle-grade kids to adults. All the answers are at the back if you get stumped!

I love the cover, it’s Victorian style and pictures are lovely.  The whole package is worth the purchase!
