If you enjoy wordplay, this is one circus you won't want to miss! This aptly titled book is an amazing collection of fun with words, laid out with a circus theme (every section is treated as a different circus act). I can't believe one person came up with all these word tricks!
I am a student at Monmouth College enrolled in CLAS224/ Word Elements were are studing about origins of words and words themselves. This book has been a priceless tool, for any inspiring young teacher. This book The Word Circus by Richard Lederer dives into English in a fun and enjoyable way. The illustration are wonderful and the text is well written and though of. Word Circus¿s illustrations done by Dave Morice are shown in a humorous manner about Lederer strange and interesting definitions and examples using carne folk as his inspiration. Only Richard Lederer could make English a fun and enjoyable experience. Overall I enjoy the book. I give it four out five stars.
