Square Pears are riddles that come in “pairs”.  The
question comes in a pair….a picture and a riddle.  The
answer comes in the form of a pair….two words or two
sequences of words.  An example is the picture to the left….
the riddle is “what the dill did to make his friend laugh
uncontrollably”.  The answer…."a pickle tickle".
All presentations are geared to your specific age group(s) 5 to 105 years.
