Description
"The way to get the feel of words is to begin with a sound and let it grow," advises poet Alastair Reid in this 1958 book for readers up to 9. "ZZZZ is the sound of someone sleeping. From it, you easily move to BUZZ and DIZZY, and soon you have a list." Through his lighthearted wordplay Reid explores the wondrous waywardness of words—their sound and sense and nonsense. Here are light words (willow, whirr, spinnaker) and heavy words (galoshes, mugwump, crumb), words on the move and odd words, words that read both ways and words that read the wrong way around (rezagrats). Artist Ben Shahn provides more than 100 glorious drawings, in the only book he illustrated that was written specifically for children. "I want every children's book editor and also every primary and middle school teacher and librarian in America to read this book," proclaimed Daniel Pinkwater on NPR's Weekend Edition. "It is the antidote to plotting, plot-driven, two-line synopsizable, anti-imagination books.... [It] can be read cover to cover, back to front, middle to end, upside down, any way you like."
