Do you have a child who asks, "Why doesn't spelling make sense?" A

student whose bad spelling cuts short their creative expression?

That was Stanley.

"I'm never writing again!" Stanley vows.

He crumples up his favorite dragon story and throws it into the trash. But a mysterious book hits him on the head and leads him into the Forest of Wild Words. There, Stanley learns that spelling is not all that hard.

In this playful book, award-winning reading specialist Mona Voelkel shares the approach to spelling that has helped so many students gain confidence. Acclaimed artist Nancy Kincade's fanciful illustrations bring the Forest of Wild Words and its inhabitants vividly to life.

Once you travel with Stanley on his adventure, spelling will never be the same.
