Reviewed by Publishers Weekly Reviews (PW Reviews 2013 August #3)

As an ode to/sendup of "kids' corner" newspaper features, McSweeney's began publishing its own syndicated collection of puzzles, games, and teasers in 2011, with all the irreverent, cross-generational humor one would expect from such a project. Forty-four entries are collected in this book, with contributions from Kevin Cornell, Carson Ellis, Jon Klassen, Adam Rex, and many more. Mazes, "spot the difference" games, and connect-the-dots are common; many recurring elements are laugh-out-loud funny. Jon Scieszka offers an occasional science "korner" (step one for making a prehistoric fossil: "Place a large, dead animal at the bottom of the ocean"), and a "Cook with Your Face" segment presents bite-size recipes for "mouthshakes" and "salsa de la boca" ("Chew thoroughly, until ingredients are fully mixed"). From newly minted words and dress-up Rasputin dolls to internal organ trading cards, it's more than enough to keep hipster parents and their kids entertained. Ages 8–up. (Oct.)
