You Can Do The Cube

Solve the CUBE!

You Can Do the Cube
Bossert
1981

The Rubik’s Cube is another puzzle skill I don’t have. Even with directions and help, I doubt I would get this to work. Holly, however, is a champ at the Rubik’s Cube – obviously the result of a misspent youth. Rubik’s Cube was a huge deal in the 80s and I still see people playing with the puzzle from time to time. As you can see from the pictures, this particular book is barely hanging on and probably needs to be replaced.

I wouldn’t necessarily call this or a weeder, condition not withstanding. The author’s age and the whole idea of a kid solving the puzzle, when no one could, is a cool story. I would imagine the content is still good. I actually think that this book might work despite the age in a puzzle-oriented collection, but I think most folks would probably run to YouTube to solve the puzzle, not checkout a book.

Submitter: I work in an engineering library. This is the sort of book vandalism only engineering students would do- please note the careful workmanship. The knife never punctured the cover, and the letters were lifted off without tearing them or the cover underneath. We are torn between annoyance at people altering books and respect for creativity and craftsmanship so rarely seen these days.
