written by Brian Cleary; illustrated by Brian Gable
With the same liveliness and zaniness of their previous books, Cleary and Gable are back with this book for teaching adverbs. Bouncy verses define adverbs ("Adverbs tell us when and how, / Like, quickly do your homework, now") and then give a seemingly endless list of examples which are printed in color to make them stand out from the text.
Readers learn that adverbs often end in -LY (ie: the small spread above is from that section) as well as other characteristics of adverbs.
"The energy and sheer
razzmatazz...will have young grammarians entranced." And Kirkus Reviews commended it for "...effectively
explaining a potentially boring subject through a bouncy rhyming text
filled with puns and jokes that will appeal to kids."
