All Sam Swallow wants is to join the Little League baseball team. But on the way to the park he stumbles, hits his head and falls into Riddleworld, a land where birds talk in puzzles and cats wait to pounce. Nothing is what it seems to be in Riddleworld. Sam himself has been transformed into a bird. To get back to this world, Sam needs to solve some difficult puzzles, make a few unlikely friends and avoid the cats at all costs.
“Do you know someone who loves riddles? Then this is the book for them. … This is Vancouver author (and obviously puzzle fanatic) New’s first novel. Yayo, whose black-and white artwork enlivens the book, lives in Montreal.”
