Grade 1-3?Adults may find this book fun to read aloud. The simple plot revolves around a young girl who is sent to the principal's office when she can't stop speaking in hyphenated slang words; e.g., higgledy-piggledy, mish-mash, nit-wit, etc. As it turns out, her teacher, the school nurse, and the principal seem to come down with the same affliction and, before finding a solution, run through a veritable compendium of hyphenated words and nonsense phrases, most of which rhyme. Those reading aloud should prepare themselves for the inevitable outpouring of similar words from the audience. Murdocca's bled double-page, lively watercolors on oversized pages are chockablock with cartoon characters and details to pore over, adding even more humor to the amusing story. Side-splitting fun.?Barbara McGinn, Oak Hill Elementary School, Severna Park, MD

Very cute book. I was disappointed in the condition of the book when I received it. Some of the pages were taped together and as a whole, the book is in pretty rough shape.Published 9 months ago by Charles L. Richey
