Away with Words!

illustrated by Perry Hoberman

In this poetry collection, Mary Ann Hoberman celebrates the joy of wordplay with poems about the alphabet, assonance, alliteration, grammar and punctuation, similes, rhythm and rhyme, and so much more!

Words are remarkable
Here is a book
Where you’ll not only listen
You also will look
Where you’ll not only look
But you also will think
About words and their meanings
And how in the blink
Of an eye or a letter
Their meanings can change
Words are remarkable
Language is strange!”
