Its name? Bananagrams. These addictive word puzzles (there are seven different types) all use the familiar anagram as their base, but they take the form in new directions. From crosswords to word grids to “banana shakes” (unscrambling multiple words), they can be enjoyed by all ages.
Bananagrams! The Book was a hit last year, and author Joe Edley is poised to release a second collection, More Bananagrams! on April 1.
We enjoyed the puzzles so much that they appear on the back page of some versions of BookPage. Want to give them a try? Workman has sent us seven copies of Bananagrams! The Book to share with lucky Book Case readers.
