Well, I love books and I enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles so this one combined two subjects for me. Like all ravensburger puzzles, it's very well made, you can tell if you've put a piece in the wrong place! The quality of the pieces is very good. The picture was fascinating, the more you did, the more quirky little details got revealed.

A witty and entertaining puzzle to do, and the colours and detail in the illustration are wonderful. I wish there were more available like this.

One of my favourite jigsaws ever! Makes one concentrate and takes time to complete; most enjoyable - would recommend.

This is a real teaser of a puzzle; virtually impossible to do without keep on referring to the picture (top of box and one inside as well). But on completion, it is fascinating - hang on in there, complete it!!

The jigsaw is great, but the books are better. Colin Thompson is on my guest list for my "Fantasy Dinner Party" - I'll put him between Spike Milligan and Peter Ustinov. My children LOVE Thompson's books - there's always something new to discover and, hallelujah, there's interest for adults too. Absolutely brilliant.

The Bizarre Bookshop is a fantastic puzzle - every time I look at the box cover I see yet another tiny creature or object lurking somewhere within the old books, and the title changes are hilarious! The quality of the jigsaw itself is excellent.

What an entertaining jigsaw this is! The picture is full of little quirks that are hard to see on the box, but come out as the jigsaw is completed, making the insertion of each new piece a bit of a discovery. Added to which, the little jokes on each of the book spines are very amusing and will appeal to all fans of bad puns. It is also a bit educational, as it will encourage people to look up the book names that they are not familiar with.

As usual with Ravensburger the pieces are well made and slot together well. I had no trouble with missing pieces.

In all, a fun and quirky puzzle that entertains more than most jigsaws.

This is an interesting jigsaw which I enjoyed piecing together over the 3 days it took me to complete. The pieces fit together well and the colours are good. It is full of clever/humorous book titles etc, making it a refreshing change from the scenic views of most jigsaw puzzles. Any chance of another similar themed jigsaw puzzle???

drove me mad but in a good way as the puzzle is such a puzzle; loved all the puns on book titles (lots on the same one so it appears in different versions all over the shelves), loved the little oddities hidden between, on top of and running up and down the books.
Some of the straight edges aren't obvious which all adds to the complexity.
Great value for money as it is a real challenge right to the last pieces which click together easily. Well made with lovely colours and good finish. Only gripe is that the details on the picture are tiny (letters) and hard to read but that might be due to my glasses!

Put this on my wish list last Christmas and there it was Christmas morning! Started it on Boxing Day, and took about a week just spending an hour or so at a time, usually with a glass of wine. Family were dipping in and out helping and everyone thought this was a charming picture with fun surprises as you progress. Lent it to my cousin who does 'serious' puzzles and she enjoyed it too. Have put the Kitchen Cupboard jigsaw on my wish list for this Christmas, so fingers crossed. Very enjoyable, good strong pieces and various shapes. ( hate those jigsaws where all the shapes are the same)
