Product Description

Product Description

Fantastic design by hugely popular author and artist Colin Thompson (creator of the best-selling puzzle The Bizarre Bookshop). Many people consider libraries to be dull, boring places, despite the fantastic tales waiting to be discovered on the crowded shelves. But enter The Ludicrous Library and you'll find a curious place that appears to have been inspired by Esher, with impossible stairways, curious creatures and fantasy worlds. Includes extra puzzle picture on in-box leaflet, together with artist's biography

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice little jigsaw 14 May 2012
By Anon.
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a lovely little jigsaw. It's only 500pc, so quick enough to do - but the detail within it makes it really enjoyable. You keep finding new little guys & worlds hiding about the place so it avoids the frustration you can feel with some repetitively patterned puzzles.

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I really enjoyed this puzzle - brightly coloured and very imaginative subject
Lots of detail - a teeny spider,keys,ghouls, legged books and spells !
Good to see this subject in the 500 format which I prefer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy but fun 10 July 2013

Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I love doing puzzles and ordered from Amazon for the very first time, since I couldn't find any new ones in shops at my home town.
It took a little longer to reach me than it should have, but it's not really a problem for me, at least I got it at all.

I think that this Ravensburger's puzzle could have been a little bit bigger. It might seems to be a reasonable size, but it would be fun if the titles of the books would be readable.

I've finished it in one day (same day I received it :P), so it really wasn't difficult to do, but fun.

Have two other puzzles waiting for their turn (this time from Schmidt, just hope their quality is going to be fine, as I've never bought Schmidt's before.

5.0 out of 5 stars Appealing subject, perfect for a weekend 8 Dec 2012
A friend asked me to bring a 500 piece igsaw for a quick trip away. I had already done this jigsaw months ago, but did not mind doing it again, as I love books, and the fantasy creatures that lurk within and around the ones shown in this puzzle. The three of us completed it before we had to leave, and we all commented on the quality of the make, with thick smooth pieces that never peel away. The extra picture inside is handy too. One of us (not me!) did not like the picture, but I was intrigued by the trickiness of it. There are many, many staircases in this image, and to begin with they all look the same! I'd much rather have stairs and books than lakes, mountains and sky that all look the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the right level of hard for a 500 piece. 25 April 2014

This really was tricky and I really enjoyed it - kept coming back it and then needing a break. Best to position in natural light if possible - particularly when you are trying to put the last 20 or so pieces in it.

There now is a variety of beautifull landscapes, funny scenes and 3-dimensional objects available for reasonable prices.
As there are also different shapes, colours and patterns each puzzle is a new challenge. Look no further for a superb hobby.

5.0 out of 5 stars TOP THIS! 16 Feb 2014
Having had a delightful experience with one Ravensburger offering, I had another Ravensburger moment when the fun continued with The Ludicrous Library Puzzle, a 500 piece challenge that made me the envy of other travelers and guests at a top flight hotel. Simply excellent and tremendous fun!

This one is quite a challenge in its way but is very enjoyable to do. Shades of Esher and I'm glad there were only 500 pieces
