Product Description
A CRYPTOCATEGORY word puzzle is a category of items followed by a coded list. These cryptocategories are categories of items, such as Names, Places, or Setting, from THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN. Below each category is a coded list of words from the book that fall under the categories. For example, under the category of Names might be "Tom," "Dick," and "Harry." "A" might stand for "T," "Y" might stand for "O," "F" might stand for "M," so AYF would decode as TOM. Some hints have been provided (although you may want to provide more), and each category has its own code. NOTE: Cryptocategories are specific to the book. Please see preview.

Categories:
* The Mississippi River
* Pap
* Jim’s Escape
* Bricksville
* Huckleberry
* The King and the Duke
* Huck’s Vernacular
* Mark Twain
