Arithme-Tickle contains eighteen rhyming riddles which can only be solved through addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.  The delightful problems range from calculating a poodle’s weight to determining the number of bees in a beehive.  Lewis aids provides the reader with the solution, but it can only be deciphered with the aid of a mirror.  The colorful illustrations supplied by Remkewicz add to the appeal of this problem-solving delight.
