In a fresh, playful approach to compound words, children are invited to have fun with two-part words whose composition may be unusual or tricky to understand. Vibrant illustrations of such examples as a berry made of straw, a boy dressed as a cow, and a cat that can photocopy, provide original and funny visual cues to the words' meanings. Humor is apparent in both the witty text and the painterly illustrations, encouraging fun with language, while a reference at the back of the book will help children understand that the meaning of the compound word is not always the same as the two words apart.
