“[A] lesson on homonyms and homophones is such a natural for the Words Are CATegorical series, with its signature combination of fast-paced rhymes and zany illustrations, that the topic is well worth revisiting…. An enjoyable mix of wordplay and grammar.” —Booklist
School Library Journal
“As the book claims, ‘the fun doesn’t lessen as you laugh through each lesson.’ Students will not only be repeating these silly verses but will be writing their own as well.” —School Library Journal
