Ugh - did anyone else noticed the answers to the puzzle on page 95are missing? My daughter is doing this book for her schools summer program but we are both completely thrown by this puzzle ... We figure they are compound words ... We figure the red letters have something important ... We figure the extra letters at the end and beginning of words mean they combine with the same root word ... But then we get stuck
As I'm sure you've figured out in the two days since you've posted this, some of the puzzles are answered in the story itself, rather than in the back of the book. Keep reading, and listen in as the characters discuss the puzzle. Soon you'll be given both another opportunity to solve it, as well as the answer itself. I hope you and your daughter enjoy the book.
