Cryptograms to Keep You Sharp
by Olivia Carlton




Overview -
Exercise your brain while you uncover some pithy food for thought. Cryptograms are substitution codes--every letter in the code has been replaced by some other letter; you try to find which letters stand for which others. Every cryptogram has a different substitution system. Some hints: Start with the shortest words. Break down long words into prefixes or suffixes. Look for word containing an apostrophe. A chart gives you hints for three letters in each puzzle. The more you solve, the better you get. It's like this:

WHY DOES WOOD BURN SO EASILY IN THE FOREST AND WITH SUCH
