Crack the Crocus Code!

Now that the party has started, don’t even think you can kick back and relax! Let’s get you warmed up for all that travel ahead, you know, flex the mind, get the juices flowing, the senses all perky…

Here is how-

I have jumbled up some letters for you in utter disorder. Unscramble each set to make meaningful words, ALL related to BOOKS! Then, grab the ones inside the circles and rearrange them to reveal this year’s message for Crocus!

If you can get a kid to team up, we’d love it even more! It's been cooked up with the younger brains in mind.

Email your answers to The first entry with MOST correct answers – words AND end message will get to pick ONE book from all the Crocus 2010 reviews and actually own it (subject to availability)!! Scrumptious, uh?

It gets even better, there is a consolation prize this year for the second best entry! If you are trying to guess how much more creative the prizes can get, it’s a no-brainer actually. The consolation prize will be a copy of Dinaben and the Lions of Gir, signed by the authors:)

Do not forget to add your name in the email. Please limit one entry per person or team. Contest closes at 7pm GMT on October 30, 2010. The winner will be announced when the curtains on Crocus 2010 come down. The prizes will be mailed to the winners, in whatever corner of the world you are hiding, in November 2010.

Now, stop drooling and get cracking!

Good luck!

Simply awesome, M! It was lot of fun cracking. K enjoyed it thoroughly! Being one of the members of the immediate family, I guess we only get to solve, sit back and watch the fun! :)
