For the noble purpose of bringing joy, "Lunch from a Cannon" fires away with 62 poems, including a brand new take on the English folktale "Jack and the Beanstalk". Poems range from the humorous to the wondrous and profound.
A riddle is a challenge that is meant to be solved whereas a joke is a setup for an amusing pun or statement. This book features 50 original riddles with one-word solutions. A word is described atypically, sometimes using metaphor or quirks of language as misdirection, and you must deduce the word. Many of the riddles take a poetic form reminiscent of older, traditional riddles.
