Books Never Written

“Books Never Written” is a type of educational riddle or puzzle that is often used in language arts or literature classes to help students improve their critical thinking and problem-solving skills. These riddles take the form of a fake book title and a brief summary of the “plot” or “summary” of the book, and the students have to figure out what the real title of the book is, based on the clues provided.

For example:

“The End of the Rope” A book about a man who is stranded on a deserted island and must find a way to survive using only the materials he has on hand.

The real title of the book is “Robinson Crusoe” by Daniel Defoe.


“A Rose in the Dark” A book about a woman who overcomes a difficult past and learns to trust and love again.

The real title of the book is “The Thorn Birds” by Colleen McCullough.

These riddles are meant to be fun and engaging while also challenging students to think critically and make connections between different pieces of information. They can also be used to introduce students to classic literature, as well as to promote reading and a love of books.
