I’ve always enjoyed cre­at­ing and solv­ing puz­zles. When I was in ele­men­tary school, I’d spend hours draw­ing elab­o­rate mazes for my friends to solve. Now that I’ve grown up, I get paid to make puzzles!

There’s a col­lec­tion of six books in one, Detec­tive Dav­e’s Mad Mys­ter­ies.

Are you up for a lit­tle detec­tive work yourself? 

Try one of the puz­zles from The Pirate’s Yo-Ho Hoax (answers).

Or you can try two of the many puz­zles I cre­at­ed for Spi­der and Crick­et magazines:

Every­thing Under the Sun” (answers) or

Mrs. Pat and Her Big Red Hat” (answers).
