7/31/12 ** Saw this book somewhere this summer - maybe here on GoodReads?
What are wumbers? Words that have numbers inside them L8 = late. Some are more sophisticated: S2L = stool. Many of the two page spreads have some sort of pun or riddle. I liked the penguins having a 4mal event and the cookie jar escapade.
I was surprised that there wasn't a unifying storyline across the entire text; instead, each 2 page spread was its own vignette. I will definitely be using this book with my fourth graders as I work to add more "play" to our exploration of language. This will be a good companion to the Dollar Words that Rob Buyea described in Because of Mr. Terrupt
