Overview

Only a superhero like WordGirl, endowed with power punches and dictionary strength, can put word-wrenching scoundrels back in their place!

Disguised as mild-mannered 5th grader Becky Botsford, WordGirl arrived on planet Earth when she and her monkey sidekick, Captain Huggy Face, crashed their spaceship. In classic superhero form, WordGirl possesses superhero strength with the added benefit of a colossal vocabulary. WordGirl has a family and friends who have no idea of her secret identity or that she battles and prevails over evil (albeit ridiculous and comical) villains. Each book introduces new vocabulary words and will reinforce their meaning in a variety of contexts.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
An alien with superhero strength and a huge vocabulary, WordGirl and her monkey sidekick end up on Earth after their spaceship crash-lands. Under the secret identity of fifth-grader Becky Botsforth, she fights evil villains while introducing new vocabulary words. There are at least three more WordGirl graphic novels plus a PBS children’s TV series.
