    Having never delved into puzzle games or tangrams before, I found myself drawn into the colorful tangram world the author has created in this introductory book. It is a quietly inviting book, and encourages one to contemplate the apparent simple construction of each image. Ms. Ford first introduces the reader to each individual shape, and the method of joining them together, and then, as the book develops, the shapes become increasingly complicated and intricate, incorporating color and pattern. Her joy is apparent in the discovery of so many possible and varied forms from the 7 basic shapes, and this sparks the reader to carry that forward into playing with the shapes to create one's own pictures. There is also a resource section to discover more information about tangrams. Overall, the book is colorful and constructive, and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in geometric design and contemplative puzzles.
