Attention all Shipping Forecast fans. Set sail on a voyage unlike any other…

Each day, millions tune in to hear the Shipping Forecast‘s 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 a map as place names on the coasts or in the seas. For example:

· An eagle’s under this
· What a Komodo Dragon really is
· Near where someone was horribly cruel to 343 felines

And because your voyages trace the shapes of letters of the alphabet, that’s just the beginning…

With a foreword by Zeb Soanes, the voice of the Shipping Forecast, and fully illustrated with specially commissioned maps, The Shipping Forecast Puzzle Book will help make you a Master of the quizzing world.
