What is alliteration? You’ll find the answer inside this book—it’s packed with wonderful and wacky words that start with similar sounds. Brian P.

For easy identification, key examples of alliteration appear in color, and comical cats reinforce each idea.

Reviews

Booklist

“Wildly colorful, Goneau’s cartoon illustrations turn the rhythmic, rhyming verses into comically exaggerated little dramas. While many children’s books use alliteration, few actually define it or talk about it. This playful yet practical book will help kids grasp the concept.”―Booklist
