"My daughters and I read through the entire book together in one sitting, enjoying the clever wordplay. I particularly liked it when Worden was able to make similar-looking illustrations for a pair of homophones, with just subtle changes to reflect the differences in meanings. Whether you enjoy wordplay and puns, or if you just have a hard time remembering the difference between 'affect' and 'effect,' this book is for you!"
