Words have secret lives. On a quiet afternoon the words escape the dictionary (much to the consternation of Mr. Noah Webster) and flock to Hollywood for a huge annual event--Lexi-Con. Liberated from the pages, words get together with friends and relations in groups including an onomatopoeia marching band, the palindrome family reunion, and hide-and-seek antonyms. It's all great fun until the words disagree and begin to fall apart. Can Noah Webster step in to restore order before the dictionary is disorganized forever?

"Teachers will have field day with this wordplay; this caper is clever, capricious, and cunning." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Bored with sitting in a dictionary 'day in, day out,' the words make a break for it and organize a parade which...introduce linguistics terminology in just about the most playful way possible." -- Publishers Weekly ( starred review)

Best picture book I've read in a long time. Creative, funny, entertaining for all ages, teaches different types of words in a way that kids will remember them. I learned words even I did not know before I read this book.
