Review “This atypical alphabet book humorously addresses “mischievous words”
that ignore the rules of phonetics and spelling… Each letter’s sample is
illustrated with cartoony, full-color drawings followed by a comically absurd
sentence highlighting other examples. “G is for Gnocchi. / The gnome yells,
‘Waiter! There’s a bright white gnat nibbling on my gnocchi!’ …the concept
will help new readers and new English language learners conquer some of the
more peculiar aspects of our language.” – Kirkus”Explore the many quirks and
anomalies of English spelling and pronunciation in an A-to-Z tribute to some
of the most unconventional words in the lexicon. Learn why Y is not for “why”
and U is not for “you,” but V is for “five” and C is for “czar.” With this
book full of puns, alliteration, playful artwork, and plenty of entertaining
observations, children of all ages will enjoy celebrating the exceptions to
the rules.” – Foreword Reviews, STARRED Review”A raucous trip through the odd
corners of our alphabet.” – The New York Times”Are you a logophile (someone
who loves words)? If you are, this delightful picture book will be your new
favorite alphabet book… In this book, “A is for Aisle” and “H is for Heir”.
What? Below each letter and illustration is a sentence describing each word.
“M is for Mnemonic. // But now Mr. M. can’t remember why.” Isn’t this a
delight for readers and writers of all ages? It’s my new favorite.” –
Imagination Soup”A win for word nerd kids and pun-tastic dads everywhere.” –
The Dad”The book spotlights words that have silent letters, or weird grammar
rules, and invites you to ponder dangerous word traps and oddities. And you
might learn something new along the way…While other lessons teach really
important principles that, honestly, could change your life and maybe even
help you find love.” – Funny or Die””P Is for Pterodactyl” is a word lover’s
delight and an almost mandatory read-aloud… Amid all the humor, wordplay,
and silliness, there’s solid, brain-teasing information about words and how
they’re spelled. It a delight from start to finish, especially for word lovers
and their offspring.” – Common Sense Media Read more About the Author Better
