Pizza parlor twists into baby parlor. California wine echoes back as California whine. The ‘horn’ in great-horned owl becomes an automobile horn which sparks great-horned Cadillac.

Pete hopes the enjoyment you get from reading this book will encourage you to develop your own style of wackiness. Join in the fun. Words are wonderful toys to play with; they are everywhere and they’re all free.
