I don't know about you, but I was that nerdy kid gobbling up logic puzzle books every chance I got. A love passed on my grandma, I couldn't get enough of them. So imagine my horror when I tried to introduce Matt to Logic puzzles and he looked at me like I was three headed unicorn from another dimension.
Then, along came Logic Lotty: The Fortune Teller's Spoon on LibraryThing's Early Reviewer list and I was lucky enough to get a copy to review*.

About the Author
I knew I would be pleased with Logic Lotty: The Fortune Teller's Spoon before I finished the first paragraph. The writing was descriptive, made use of alliteration and introduced irony.
I kept reading and realized that it is a FANTASTIC way to introduce logic puzzles to kids who just don't "get" them.
The pages are full of illustrations, diagrams and step by step details of how to solve a logic puzzle, all woven into the story line.
I haven't put the book in my kiddo's hands yet only because I have a PDF copy that I need to print and bind first.
I'm really looking forward to the release of subsequent titles in this series.
