HIDDEN PUZZLE ANSWERS

paw red.gif
paw black.gif

Please see below for the solutions to all of the hidden puzzles in the first book of ' The Adventures of Kubit'. 

If have not already make sure you look at the 'Hidden Puzzle Hint' section at the back on page 49 of the book, as this will help you find all the maths mysteries spread out through all the pages. There are even some 'Super Secret' puzzles that are hidden in the book with no clues to find them at all. These are often longer puzzles that your child may not want to spend the time to complete and so are not included in the puzzle checklist at the back of the book. I have included the answers to these puzzles below, but marked them with an asterisk (*)

Please see below for the solutions to all of them...
