  • The Shipping Forecast Puzzle Book

  • Severe quizzing. Moderate or good, occasionally fiendish.

    The Shipping Forecast is a British institution. Each day, millions tune in to hear its unique cadence and poetry, words that turn our island landscape into something strange and 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 the maps as place names on the coasts or in the seas. As you trace out the shape of each journey, you will reveal the shapes of letters, which you use in an endgame that's a whole other level of puzzling. You'll also get to know what it's really like to be in the smells and sounds of Fair Isle and North Utsire.

    With a foreword by Zeb Soanes, the voice of the Shipping Forecast, and fully illustated with Met Office maps and packed with fascinating seaside trivia, The Shipping Forecast Puzzle Book will help make you a Master of the quizzing world.
