*GIVEAWAY Posted 31 Dec 2015. Enter By 6th Jan 2016.*
David Astle – known to many kids from his appearances on SBS’s Letters and Numbers and to their parents as ‘DA’, the king of cryptic crosswords – has created a brain-teaser of a book packed full of crosswords, puzzles, riddles and tongue twisters.
He’s come up with a sneaky way to introduce children to the mechanics of cryptic crossword puzzles, by taking them through different kinds of wordplay – anagrams, pangrams, spoonerisms, tongue-twisters, homophones – before presenting them with crossword puzzles to solve using everything learnt so far. ‘DA’ puns and word plays abound, making this the word nerd’s bible of wordy trickery and puzzling.
We have 5 copies of Wordburger to give away. For your chance to win, post a comment on the GIVEAWAY story which will be on our facebook page from 2.30pm AEDT 31st December, telling us what’s your favourite word and why.
The five most interesting and original responses by 5pm AEDT 6th January will each win a copy of Wordburger, thanks to our friends at Allen & Unwin. Please note the competition is open to Australian residents only. The winners will be announced on our facebook page.
