Illustrated by Eric Comstock. Coming January 23, 2018, from Paula Wiseman Books, Simon and Schuster.
The early reviews--
"Bored with sitting in a dictionary 'day in, day out,' the words make a break for it and organize a parade—which lets Sierra (WildAbout You!) and Comstock (the Charlie Piechart series) introduce linguistics terminology in just about the most playful way possible."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"A passel of stir-crazy words escape from Noah Webster’s dictionary and proceed to “Hollyword” in the playful, sneakily educational pages of "The Great Dictionary Caper' . . . ."
—Wall Street Journal
"Teachers will have field day with this wordplay; this caper is clever, capricious, and cunning."
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"It’s all fun and word games, but in the process, readers will also get a tidy lesson in linguistic concepts, like onomatopoeia and contractions."
—American Library Association Booklist (starred review)
