A World Treasury of Riddles: Riddle Me This Paperback - 2001

by Phil Cousineau; Foreword by Wes 'Scoop' Nisker


From the publisher

Mythologist and adventurer Phil Cousineau theorizes that riddles are proverbs turned into questions. He believes telling riddles is a lost folk art. This eclectic collection of brain twisters from Leonardo da Vinci to Lewis Carroll is designed to bring the practice back to the living room. Cousineau invites readers into the peripatetic, poetic, and sweet language of riddles

First line

What is it that walks with four legs in the morning, with two legs at midday, and with three legs when the sun has gone down?
