In this third volume of the highly acclaimed Puzzlebook: Puzzle Quizzes series, the Grabarchuk Family once more does itself proud in the arena of pictorial puzzle quizzes that span the range of visual, spatial, counting, geometry, matchstick, coins and searching puzzles, plus many more. In Puzzlebook: 102 Puzzle Quizzes, the authors’ choice of bright colors and variety of shapes that they use in their hand-crafted delights is truly admirable. The puzzles are all presented, as always, in a highly logical and rational way. Clearly, the Grabarchuk Family takes great pride in their work, and so they should. For a company that is based in the Ukraine, their puzzles are fascinatingly international in flavor.

The authors’ careful explanation of how the ebook works encourages an easy familiarity with the format from the very first. Being able to work through the various levels of puzzle, which are all clearly marked as belonging to a level from one to five, is reassuring and encouraging. The puzzles can take anything from a few minutes to several, depending on your level of expertise. They are all highly stimulating and encourage lateral thinking.

The Grabarchuk Family also clearly enjoy interacting with their audience of puzzlers, as they encourage one to contact them either through their Facebook page, or on Twitter. Befriending them on the former, or following them on the latter, can increase your enjoyment of their books to a marked degree, as not only can you then see what others have to say about their work (which is all very complimentary, it seems), but you also come to learn at first hand of their freeby puzzles that they tend to make available on such special occasions as Mother’s Day. They truly are a family-centred firm, and clearly have the best interests of their audience at heart.

I always play their puzzles on the Kindle app for Windows, as I work on my laptop, so I have ready access to a few moments’ relief when the job at hand (either editing or indexing) threatens to become a little tedious. Being a non-smoker, I then tend to take a ‘puzzle break,’ rather than a smoke one – much healthier for one, both physically and mentally, I assure you!
