Classic Lit Blackout Games

Author(s): Adams Media


Think outside the puzzle with this book! Combining the simplicity of word search with the creativity of magnetic poetry, this clever book dares you to black out words and phrases and transform classic pieces of literature into outrageous, poetic, or truly bizarre messages.

Use the words in the following passage to form a profound statement worthy of a fortune cookie.

I says, 'Here's the boy again, a looking at me whiles I eats and drinks!' I see you there a many times, as plain as ever I see you on them misty marshes. 'Lord strike me dead!' I says each time,--and I goes out in the air to say it under the open heavens,--'but wot, if I gets liberty and money, I'll make that boy a gentleman!' And I done it. Why, look at you, dear boy! Look at these here lodgings o'yourn, fit for a lord! A lord? Ah! You shall show money with lords for wagers, and beat 'em!' In his heat and triumph, and in his knowledge that I had been nearly fainting, he did not remark on my reception of all this. It was the one grain of relief I had.

--From Charles Dickens's Great Expectations

Finally, here's your chance to pen your own time-honored tales. So go ahead, grab a quill (or just pretend) and start scribbling outside the lines!
