Award-winning children's book author Helaine Becker has created a playful and multilayered book that will find lots of uses in the classroom. It provides a perfect, easy-to-understand language arts lesson on adjectives in general and on comparatives and superlatives in particular. It also works as an alphabet book, a primer for spelling and a vocabulary resource. And it's a truly fun picture book story as well --- with a surprising twist at the end! --- that early readers and pre-readers can enjoy on their own. Dave Whamond's exuberant illustrations are bursting with humor and lots of comical details, encouraging visual literacy. As a bonus, more information about these distinctive adjectives along with teaching tips can be found at the end of the book.
