May I Have A Word?
by Caron Levis & Andy Rash
Farrar, Strauss, & Giroux (BYR)
A battle of the magnet letters ensues across the refrigerator door in May I Have a Word when C and K get into a fight about who gets to start the cooler (kooler?) words. When the two letters storm off in opposite directions, everything is turned upside down. SOCKS are now SO, there aren't any CLOCKS to TICK or TOCK, and the world is just out of LUCK--until other letters work to bring C and K back together again.
"This unique, hilarious selection will have readers of all ages laughing out loud. Be prepared for it to be in high demand after one read-aloud."
-School Library Journal
"Keen and klever with a knack for clear instruction" -Kirkus Review
"Breezy and boldly visual, it will have children looking at the letters on their own refrigerators with new respect—and it should provide teachers with inspiration for classroom activities, too." —Publishers Weekly
