A Call For Riddles
You know that riddle about the wolf, the sheep, and the cabbage? You want to bring them across the river in a boat that can only carry one of them at a time, but you can’t leave the sheep and the cabbage alone together because the sheep will eat the cabbage, and you can’t leave the wolf and the sheep alone together because the wolf will eat the sheep.
Anyway, my 7-year-old son loves that riddle, and every night he demands a new riddle as good as that one, and to tell you the truth I don’t know many very good riddles. So today I thought I’d ask you kind readers for your riddles, to help me out with dinner time conversations.
Happy to take links! Maybe there’s a list or a book of great riddles somewhere I don’t know about!
p.s. If you google “list of riddles” you come up with something that’s far too sophisticated and involves word play rather than logic. So maybe “riddle” isn’t the right word.
p.p.s. This list is pretty good. I found it by looking for “logic puzzles.”
