World Of Word Ladders
::: by Ólafía L. Óla :::
Improve your kids' thinking ability, spelling skills and vocabulary
A word ladder has a diagram of a ladder with a word on both the first and last rung. The blanks on the middle rungs are for you to complete.
- One and only one letter needs to change in each blank rung of the ladder so that the first word is transformed into the last word.
Your words CANNOT be
- a proper noun (name of people, places and such),
- abbreviation (short forms), or
- words of foreign, dialectal, slang or colloquial origin. Words that have gone native are all right.
This book series has two paperback volumes.
- Puzzles: 100
- Ages: 6 and above
Format Store Price Volume 1 & 2 (Paperbacks) Amazon $6 & $7 Volume 1 (Kindle eBook, January 2021) Amazon $2
I am an adult and I like to solve word ladders so I have published a print-replica Kindle ebook version of the first volume. It has been designated for teenagers and adults. If there is some demand for it, I will also publish the second volume as an ebook.

Do Note These
- You can go through this word ladder book several times. Just use a pencil and eraser.
- Next to each word ladder is its solution. The solution is obscured to protect the challenge. You may need to use a hand lens to decipher it.
- There is a glossary of obscure words at the end of the book for your reference.
- This book is not just for kids. Adults can have fun too. In fact, some of the puzzles can only be solved by grownups.
