On-the-Go offers a total of 575 original puzzles in three levels of difficulty and sixteen lively and varied puzzle types, including two created exclusively for this book. Plus there are Weords (weird words that are fun to play), lists of common two- and three-letter words to improve your game, fun facts about bananas and monkeys, and (of course!) an answer key.

It’s an appealing puzzle-book format that’s perfect for on-the-go play—to be pulled out of a purse, messenger bag, or knapsack. And just like crosswords, Sudoku, and word searches, Bananagrams! are the kind of puzzles best for when commuting or in the waiting room, or to play before bed—whenever there are a few minutes to challenge and stretch the brain.

Game of the Year winner at the 2009 International Toy Fair, Bananagrams is the international phenomenon that started with a simple idea: "An anagram game that is so fast it will drive you bananas!" Doing for letters what Sudoku did for numbers, it's the obsessive puzzle craze that starts with 144 letter tiles in a banana-shaped bag and captures all the fun of crosswords and word games like Scrabble and Boggle.

Rena Nathanson, along with her father, Abe, and her children, invented the game Bananagrams! while spending the summer of 2005 in Narragansett, Rhode Island.
