Dubosarsky, Ursula

The Word Snoop

(2) 4-6 Illustrated by Tohby Riddle. In the guise of the eponymous Word Snoop, Dubosarsky delivers a cursory, chatty tour of the evolution of the English language from ancient to modern times. She covers expected topics (spelling, punctuation) in addition to a potpourri of lesser-known tidbits; her enthusiasm for the intricacies and oddities of the English language is infectious. Pen-and-ink drawings help keep the lessons light. Glos.
