"...Fun puzzle. Unfortunately some mistakes, like 5A, dice is already a plural noun, the singular being "die". Only way you could fit "dices" in is by conjugating it as a verb, like "chops up into small pieces". 18A grammar mistake "cut up into small pieces" = shred(ded). To get ing ending you must use clue with ing too, like Cutting into small pieces. Correct these, and your puzzle is PERFECT ;-)))...."

"...I got really confused on 19 down - 'sounds LOINS make!!' - Had me thinking!..."

"...Not a bad effort, but there are several errors: I don't believe that 17a "leafs" is a word, even in US English. The sense of 8a is wrong - "catches or traps" should be "nets", the clue should be "catch or trap". 15a doesn't really need "synonym of" - that's what nearly all clues are! I don't really like 4d or 25a, but that is opinion. I would also argue that "one-handed" should be clued with the hyphen, (3-6), but length indication is a little sporadic all through the crossword and that might be a UK/US difference. ..."

"...I had no problem w/ the Sounds that A lion makes - as for the length of the workd being listed... isn't that kinda what the boxes are for? I have yet to see a hypen or apostrophe in any crossword.... but then again, thats just me!..."

"...Ha, I didn't even notice the misspell of "lions". Now, the sound "loins" evokes all sorts of images! Good cw...."
