Puzzle Heroes is an interactive series of fun, visually-led books containing an adventure or challenge on every page.

Dive into this exciting book full of amazing creatures all around the world and help save Mum from evil poachers by completing the puzzles.

Puzzle Heroes is an interactive series of very fun, visually-led books containing an adventure or challenge on every page. There are plenty of search-and-find elements in the style of Where's Wally?, combined with topics of educational value, where fun facts help with the challenges. This gives plenty of opportunity to use the book as an extra learning tool - but ultimately the quests are fantastic fun, engrossing readers to the extent that they won't realise they are learning.
