Anyone who has ever tried to learn English knows that many of our language’s words have more than one meaning. This exciting book takes that idea to a new level, illustrating just how surprising some homonyms can be. In bold, colorful double-page spreads Mirja Winkelmann’s delightful illustrations challenge readers to find the one word that fits both images. Swimwear and an elephant’s nose, or a flower and the center of an eye: making these visual connections—and thinking up even more—will spark a passion for language in young readers.
