This is a 548-piece wooden jigsaw puzzle of "Word Travels West" by Justin Hillgrove. This puzzle should brighten any rainy day. The design by Jef Bambas has an oscillating irregular edge, a variety of connectors, and whimsies representing 19 famous books (try to guess all 19 books! here is a legend: The puzzle's difficulty is average. NOTE: The irregular edge is not shown in the image on the box! Like all our puzzles, made with 1/4" thick wood and the pieces are laser-cut. Packaged in our 3" pine wood box. Made in the USA.

Review: I picked this puzzle because of the literary themes, and on that front it delivered. I loved trying to guess which books the whimsies represented (and making al my friends guess, too). And the image is cute! But ultimately I got bored working on the undifferentiated purple--which is saying something, because purple is my favorite color and I usually end up leaping in to build the purple sections first. (Also, while I get that all the whimsies are deliberately positioned to fall in the background area instead of on the central figures, I am unduly disappointed that the designer missed the opportunity to make the Scarlet Letter, well, Scarlet. There’s a red book right there that it could have been positioned on!)

Review: Our family had a lot of fun with the Word Travels West Artifact puzzle by Justin Hillgrove! To say we were obsessed with this puzzle for several days is an understatement! This puzzle is unique because the many whimsy pieces represent 19 famous books. So the challenge isn’t just to put the puzzle together but also to guess the 19 books that are represented in the puzzle. We made a list of books based on the whimsy pieces, but then discovered more clues after we put the puzzle together. We searched the house for various books looking for clues, called on friends and family for help, and had many discussions about various books. We revised our list of clues and books many times and were finally successful in guessing all 19 books correctly. It was truly a family project, one we will always remember! Kudos to Jef Bambas for designing such a fun puzzle!
