The eighth in Espy's inimitable "words at play" series, this compendium includes verses, quotations, rebuses, limericks, acrostics, anagrams, pangrams, palindromes, and Espy's own commentary in verse. We can learn interesting information, we can have a good laugh, and we can feel frustrated by impossible word puzzles. Espy is a bit sexist, a bit too old-fashioned, and a bit pedantic with his Latin and Greek, but he has a wide following among lovers of languages and language games. Every library should have his complete works.
