Synopsis

Attention all Shipping Forecast fans. Set sail on a voyage unlike any other...



Each day, millions tune in to hear the Shipping Forecast's unique cadence and poetry, words thatturn our island landscape into something strangeand magical. It's almost like a puzzle to be solved...



The Shipping Forecast Puzzle Book tests your general knowledge and lateral thinking through a series of fiendish puzzles, in which all the answers can be found on a map as place names on the coasts or in the seas. For example:



* An eagle's under this

* What a Komodo Dragon really is

* Near where someone was horribly cruel to 343 felines



And because your voyages trace the shapes of letters of the alphabet, that's just the beginning...



With a foreword by Zeb Soanes, the voice of the Shipping Forecast, and fully illustrated with specially commissioned maps, The Shipping Forecast Puzzle Book will help make you a Master of the quizzing world.
