Are they any kind fun math brain twister books that are restricted to calculus (up to sequences) and require engaging algebra manipulation and forethought? Can anyone suggest such a book?

I'm not sure if it's what you're looking for, but the "International mathematics olympiad" has(d) very engaging HS-level problems involving number theory, algebra, etc., many of which are published in collections or exist online (check google).
