The Puzzling World of Winston Breen Eric Berlin
Winston loves finding, making, and solving puzzles. When some puzzle pieces mysteriously appear in his sister's birthday present, he's on the case. The first puzzle is to discover where the pieces came from. Winston soon discovers they're one of 4 sets of clues that lead to treasure. He and a motley crew are on a scavenger hunt of epic proportions that's about to turn very dangerous.
This book has a lot to recommend it to tween readers. In the lead-up to the adrenaline packed climax, there are many puzzles and mysteries for Winston and the reader to solve. In addition to the big puzzles that lead to the treasure, there are smaller puzzles that Winston comes across or makes up. These puzzles have very little to do with the plot, but are very fun to solve and the answers can be found in the back. The nice thing about this book is that it will appeal to many different types of readers-- the action/adventure/treasure hunting plot will appeal to the more reluctant or occasional reader, while the frequent puzzles and Winston's puzzle-loving character will appeal to more voracious readers.
