Description

Tangrams are ancient Chinese, ingenious puzzles. They are deceptively simple in design, yet can stump even the most seasoned of puzzlers. Then, the light clicks on and the answer suddenly seems so obvious. It's amazing that so many puzzles can be solved with the exact same 7 shapes. Beyond the Tangram: From the inventor of Tangram Fury, comes a Tangram Fury Animal Book. This book has dozens of animal-themed tangrams to solve. The puzzles are arranged to show a silhouetted puzzle, followed by its solution. Following a brief introduction to tangrams, the main portion of the book provides challenging or whimsical Animal-themed puzzles to solve, and their solutions, and the activities. This is followed by tidbits and trivia about tangrams and some famous people who have tinkered with tangrams over the years. (Can you solve the unsolvable "Mad Hatter" tangram created by Lewis Carroll?) It also provides some tips and suggestions for those with a competitive streak. This book series was featured on the NewsWatch TV program on Discovery Channel: http: //newswatchtv.com/2015/12/18/tangram-furyshow more

About Doug Nufer

Doug Nufer came across tangrams by accident. He was looking up a word in the dictionary and happened upon a diagram of the puzzle. Curious to know what puzzle was so famous that it was in the dictionary, he started to read up on them. Learning that tangrams can form animals, people, buildings, and dozens of other topics, the idea of creating a competitive tangram game hit him. This resulted in the game Tangram Fury. By then, the puzzle bug had fully hit him. He spent his spare time creating new tangram puzzles covering many themes. To date, he has created 1000+ tangram puzzles, a dozen themed tangram packs, and even more tangram books. He created most of the tangrams he uses in his books.show more
