We’re going to do something a little different this week.

Kathy: Something different?

Max: Yes!

This week our questions will be riddles.

Do you remember what a riddle is, Kathy?

Kathy: I think so.

A riddle is a kind of word game, isn’t it?

It’s a question without an easy answer.

Max: That’s right, Kathy.

The first riddle is: Why isn’t your nose twelve inches long?

We’ll have our answers next week.
