From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of P is for Pterodactyl comes another hilarious fresh look at the English language!

In the vein of Eats, Shoots, and Leaves, this delightful new book places pairs of similar-sounding sentences together and illustrates them in two hilariously different ways. These illustrations gone awry highlight how absurd the English language can be. But, have no fear!

The illustrations will give you all the clues you need to decipher the true meanings behind these wily words. You won't be tricked by phrases like 'C Major, it's a beautiful key! / See Major, it's a beautiful quay!' Context clues, bright illustrations, and rhyming words will help readers navigate the ridiculous text with ease.

'Endlessly funny...Preposterous situations and farcical sound-alike sentences will elicit groans and giggles.' —
Kirkus Reviews

'This book is a stellar follow-up to P Is for Pterodactyl with all the wit and humour of its predecessor, and then some. A perfect way to teach kids about language, or maybe just confuse the heck out of them, but either way, it'll be fun for the whole family.'
— Britt Margit Hopkins, Second Star to the Right

'You can curse the English language for its insane spelling rules (or lack thereof), or you can delight in it, as this raucous trip through the odd corners of our alphabet does.'
— The New York Times, Standout New Picture Books Selection

'This atypical alphabet book humorously addresses 'mischievous words' that ignore the rules of phonetics and spelling... Each letter's sample is illustrated with cartoony, full-colour drawings followed by a comically absurd sentence highlighting other examples. 'G is for Gnocchi. / The gnome yells, 'Waiter! There's a bright white gnat nibbling on my gnocchi!' ...the concept will help new readers and new English language learners conquer some of the more peculiar aspects of our language.'
— Kirkus Reviews
