Even frustrated grammarians will giggle at the who’s-on-first routine that begins with a donkey’s excited announcement, “I yam a donkey!” Unfortunately the donkey’s audience happens to be a yam, and one who is particular about sloppy pronunciation and poor grammar. An escalating series of misunderstandings leaves the yam furious and the clueless donkey bewildered by the yam’s growing (and amusing) frustration. The yam finally gets his point across, but regrettably, he’s made the situation a little bit too clear . . . and the story ends with a dark and outrageously funny twist.
Meet an unusual family with some very special children: Alan, Ellen, Iris, Otto, and Ursula. Sometimes they’re visited by their very special aunt, Cyndy. As each child is born, the family becomes more complete―and each additional Vowel also makes the text easier to read! Because if you can imagine life without the Vowels, tlkng wld b vr hrd. Rdng wld b pzzlng. Are you ready to play the Vowel game?
Following “Take Away the A” and “Where’s the Baboon?,” this is Escoffier/Di Giacomo’s last book in their zany word-play trilogy.
