Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Peg Glisson
The title page describes alliteration as "the same sound repeated at the beginning of two or more words in a phrase or a sentence." Succeeding pages demonstrate this in words and brightly colored illustrations. Alliteration is used in common sayings such as pretty as a picture and busy as a bee, in tongue twisters, and in poetry. It explores phonics and can even be used to tell a story. Brightly colored illustrations fill the pages and suggest excitement and playfulness, both of which are needed as children learn the power of language. Alliterative examples are highlighted in the big, colorful words throughout and demonstrate how alliteration adds a playful punch to writing. The last page suggests readers create an acrostic poem using their name and alliteration. Teachers will welcome this title as well as others in the "Word Fun" series, using it for large group instruction or centers work. Back matter includes a glossary, an index, and print and online resources. Reviewer: Peg Glisson

Meet the Author

When Trisha Speed Shaskan was a girl, she wanted to become a superhero. Her mother gave her a Wonder Woman costume. Her dad crafted her a tiara and bracelets out of metal to match. Trisha imagined she could fight evil, fly an invisible airplane, and get anyone to tell the truth. While she didn’t grow up to be Wonder Woman, she still uses her imagination to write stories and to teach creative writing.
Trisha has taught creative writing to children and adults for thirteen years. She has published 26 books for children, and more are forthcoming. She has an MFA in creative writing from Minnesota State University, Mankato.

Trisha currently lives in Minneapolis with her husband, Stephen, and their cat, Eartha, named after Eartha Kitt, famous for her role as Catwoman.

Sara Gray graduated with a BFA in illustration and design from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. She has worked as a freelance illustrator for Picture Window Books, Mpls/St. Paul Magazine, and Minnesota Parent Magazine.

The Word Fun series that Sara worked on with Picture Window Books won the AEP Distinguished Achievement Award and the American Graphic Design Award.

Sara currently works at Manhattan Toy Company as a product designer for Manhattan Toy's doll, plush, and puppet lines. Her illustrations also appear on Manhattan Toy's packaging for their Cirque du Soleil product line.
