Say goodbye to boring downtime and hello to Puzzlooies!, the latest in portable entertainment. Meant for kids to write in, these illustrated and compact books flip up like a reporter’s notebook, making them perfect for fast fun while on the go.

In Disaster Master, Sammy Chipper is a fearless individual blessed with all the luck in the world. She hasn’t just mastered the art of defeating disasters—she faces them with a smile! Nothing could have prepared her, though, for the next twenty-four hours. There will be earthquakes, volcanoes, an emergency squid-assisted rescue, and a swarm of hungry moths intent on eating everyone’s clothes. When the chain of events puts the entire town in danger, Sammy realizes that saving everyone by herself might be impossible, even for a Disaster Master.
Solve the puzzles inside to read on and see if our hero Sammy can be helped, or if she’s met her doom during this disaster of a day.
