"Highly entertaining...reveals the tricks of the punster's trade while challenging readers to create original wordplay of their own." --"Kliatt"
From the Publisher
Pun fun specifically designed for children 10 and above
Over the years I have found that children in middle school -- fifth through eight grade -- have quite enjoyed books of mine. I'm delighted but also concerned that I did not write those books for children of that age. When I surveyed the market, I discovered, rather to my surprise, that there is very little word fun for boys and girls above the third grade. I wrote PUN & GAMES to fill that void. The book covers the major types of puns, from homographs to spoonerisms. Respecting the intelligence of the reader, each chapter presents a type of pun and solidifies each concept with a game -- "Pun Fun" -- and an invitation -- "Your Turn" -- to create additional word play.
