The Merlin Mystery by Jonathan Gunson & Marten Coombe
New to our bookshelves comes a mystery read. Can you work out the puzzle? It seem the whole world couldn't. The Merlin Mystery was written in 1988 and is a children's puzzle book. It was published by Warner Books and certified by Mensa. It is like going on a treasure hunt and the reader is asked to solve the mystery by decoding the illustrations and learning how to cast a magic spell. It so happened that not one of the 30 000 entries received at the authors' official office contained the correct solution, and so the World Wildlife Fund was the lucky recipient of the £75,000 which was up for grabs.
