Labyrinth by Theo Guignard (Wide Eyed Editions)
"Labyrinth" by Theo Guignard not only has one of the most attractive covers to grace a puzzle book, it's full of the sort of brain-melting fun that we really love.
Weaned on cool stuff like The Etherington Bros' "Von Doogan", Charlotte already has a real zest for solving puzzles - particularly mazes as Lorenzo and Robin could turn out a really decent maze or two in their weekly puzzle strips
Theo Guignard's approach in this book is subtle at first. The first few mazes can be blitzed through fairly easily, but then he really ramps up the complexity until the very last few mazes will make you gasp (either with delight or dread if you don't like getting lost).
"Labyrinth" is a gorgeous book, sumptuous art, brilliant designs and 14 separate mazes to make your way through. Fabulously engaging stuff that will also have kids wanting to design their own mazes so crack out the squared paper and get to it! You never know, you could be nurturing the world's next greatest maze designer under your roof!
"Labyrinth" by Theo Guignard is out now, published by Wide Eyed Editions (Kindly sent for review)
