These puzzle books feature a narrative punctuated by a series of visual puzzles for the reader to solve. There is no gamebook-style branching path -- the stories are completely linear -- but there is still a melding of game and book here. The first three titles were published under the "Usborne Solve It Yourself" label before the series changed to "Usborne Puzzle Adventures."

At least three titles from the series were published in Denmark as the Gjellerup & Gad Solve It Yourself series (in English language, for educational use).
