It's all there in the name. If you're looking for an easy, catchy way for youngin's to learn their ABC's this is NOT the book. But if you're looking for an introduction to the trickery of the English language (maybe for a slightly older age group), or just a rollicking good time, the search stops here. I guarantee this will be as much fun for the adults as the kids, they might want to rethink the targeted age group!

Description


A New York Times Bestseller

A "raucous trip through the odd corners of our alphabet." --The New York Times

Let's get real--the English language is bizarre. A might be for apple, but it's also for aisle and aeons. Why does the word "gnat" start with a G but the word "knot" doesn't start with an N? It doesn't always make sense, but don't let these rule-breaking silent letters defeat you

This whimsical, funky book from Raj Haldar (aka rapper Lushlife) turns the traditional idea of an alphabet book on its head, poking fun at the most mischievous words in the English language and demonstrating how to pronounce them. Fun and informative for word nerds of all ages
