With this many years of parenthood below my belt, I’m a veteran of mazes: mazes on cereal boxes, mazes in comics, mazes on the CBeebies website. Tabs likes them well enough, but she’s really at that age where she can pretty much figure them out by eye, and after that, well, there’s not much point, is there?
Flintham’s book Marvellous Mazes (currently just Â£4.61 at Amazon) goes a step further. For starters, the mazes are complex, and nicely drawn, with several different styles, with paths created by, say, waves, flames, walls or tree roots. They also feature pleasant characters, and the whole mood is gently humorous.Â It makes the whole maze thing just that much more worthwhile.
