- We’ll start off with a simplified version of the game, where we’ve separated out each syllable in the title of the book. When you put the clues together, they should make a title. If the words don’t sound right together, you probably have the right idea but need to use a synonym!Hint:The author of this book has a last name that is similar to that of a famous Irish poet.
- The rest of the book titles can also be figured out using the pictures, but the clues can be as simple as sounds or may spell out parts of a word.
Hint: The author of this book is no stranger to stories that give you chills.
- Some of the pictures will be parts of words or entire words that sound similar to the target word. These ones are easier to figure out when you say them all together (and they work better said out loud or written out on paper). Sometimes the hints also use pop culture knowledge!Hint: Welcome back to Haven Point!
