About the Author:

Marvin Terban's popular wordplay books for Clarion include IN A PICKLE AND OTHER FUNNY IDIOMS and TO HOT TO HOOT: FUNNY PALINDROME RIDDLES. He lives in New York City.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6 An introduction to the sometimes confusing world of homographswords that are spelled alike, but are pronounced differently and have different meanings. Using the general pattern of riddle and accompanying illustration, Terban leads readers through a variety of homographs that may or may not be encountered by young readers. The book is divided into five sections which explore the various types of homographs. Answers are provided upside down in a box at the bottom of each page. They are also included in a separate listing along with a pronunciation guide at the end of each chapter. The format of the book appears to be designed for readers in grades three and four. However, despite good textual organization and entertaining and helpful illustrations showing animals enacting the homographs as clues, some homographs may be much too difficult for that age group, and the format seems too young for older students. The book will prove of interest to those students who enjoy the challenge of, and appreciate, word play. Karen P. Smith, Graduate School of Library and Information Study, Queens College, N.Y.
