A deliciously clever and entertaining collection of poems that celebrate word play by former Children's Poet Laureate and New York Times bestselling author Mary Ann Hoberman

Words are remarkable / Here is a book / Where you'll not only listen / You also will look / Where you'll not only look / But you also will think / About words and their meanings / And how in the blink / Of an eye or a letter / Their meanings can change / Words are remarkable / Language is strange!

In this poetry collection, the masterful Mary Ann Hoberman celebrates the joy of wordplay with poems about the alphabet, assonance, alliteration, grammar and punctuation, similes, rhythm and rhyme, and so much more! Every poem is accompanied with limited palette spot art, by debut children's illustrator Perry Hoberman (Mary Ann's son), to amuse and delight readers of all ages. With a perfect trim size (8 x 10), this is an ideal gift for readers of all ages and suited for Poetry Month placement.
