one foot deep and one foot wide? None. A hole is empty! Students' minds will be far from empty with this humorous book! Riddles provide a wealth of opportunity to gain new insights into the American English language and culture. Each one is accompanied by text that helps ESL students master the underlying linguistic and cultural reasons why the joke is funny. For example, How do you keep a rhinoceros from charging? (Take away his credit cards) points
out the double meaning of the word charge. Categories include riddles whose solutions depend on a play on words or cultural understanding, or those that present a logic problem. Comic art makes this a delightful way to learn English!
