Solve It Sunday: Ciphertext

Advertisements

Hello my dear Sherlocks, I have a cipher for you today! A bit different than our normal puzzles, but a tricky one nonetheless.

I hope you enjoy this post, because I had a tough time solving this puzzle. I wasn’t able to do it, unfortunately, so I gave up and looked up the answer.

As always…the answers are in the comments!

In this puzzle, the challenge is to decrypt a quotation that has been made obscure by the use of a simple cypher. Are you able to work out what it says?

    The encryption cipher works by simple substitution, moving each letter of the alphabet one step forward, so that A becomes B, B becomes C and so on. Word breaks are left alone. Decryption is simply the reversal of this process.

    The quotation is:

    “If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.” — Albert Einstein
