Synopsis

Cube Countdown by Dan Green

Cube Countdown looks at the maths and science of puzzles. Readers are put to the test in a series of shape, geometry and pattern puzzles that will take them into outer space:
BRING! BRING! You wake with a start and answer the phone.
“Cube Corps HQ here. There’s an emergency at the Command Centre. You and Superflip are required immediately. The Rubik’s Core has been stolen.”
So much for your day off. You grab Superflip’s collar, put on your uniform and head to the Command Centre on page 8.

The Magic Cube was invented in 1974 by Hungarian architecture professor Erno Rubik.

Can you complete the entire Rubik's Quest?
