Early reviews for The Great Dictionary Caper!
"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)
"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)
Judy Sierra's original tales in rhyme and her anthologies of folktales have received awards and accolades including seven Children's Choice Awards from the International Reading Association/Children's Book Council, two Aesop awards from the American Folklore Society, and the E.B. White Read-Aloud Prize from the Association of Booksellers for Children. Four of her books have been listed as Notable Books by the American Library Association, and two--Antarctic Antics and Wild About Books—have been New York Times picture book bestsellers.
Judy will be doing a blog tour for The Great Dictionary Caper in January. For more information about interviewing Judy on your blog, or hosting her as a guest blogger, please contact Provato Events.
