On a quiet afternoon the words escape the dictionary and flock to Hollyword for a huge annual event—Lexi-Con. Liberated from the pages, words get together in groups including an onomatopoeia marching band, the palindrome family reunion, and hide-and-seek antonyms. It's all great fun until the words disagree and begin to fall apart. Can Noah Webster step in to restore alphabetical order before the dictionary is disorganized forever? With a spirit of punny fun, Judy Sierra introduces many of the basic linguistic terms that readers 5 to 8 will begin to encounter at school, while Eric Comstock brings these stray letters to life in his equally cheeky illustrations.
