A most enjoyable day out in the English countryside. This jigsaw puzzle has a wonderful nostalgic feel about it; designed by the very talented Derek Roberts, the depiction of life in the 1950s is picture perfect. It is a lovely warm day, everyone is whiling away the time down by the river: the older couple are chatting on the park bench, the children are to have a delicious ice cream; and the little girl is pulling along a toy cart. The wooden A Day by the River puzzle, made in the UK, includes irregular precision-cut pieces. The print quality is exceptional and the colors of the puzzle have a real sense of yesteryear. The muted color palette works so well: bright pops of yellow, red, and blue in the foreground, soft browns of the church, and pastel greens of the hills in the background add a sense of depth to the image. What you will enjoy most about the puzzle is that it includes whimsies, pieces that have a certain shape: they maybe a fish, a boat, or even an anchor. Whimsy pieces are entertaining, and obviously must be searched out first. Have a wonderful time at the river, and don’t forget to pack your picnic!
