MERRY-GO-ROUND: A Book About Nouns

Earlier, Heller has applied her unique flamboyant approach to verbs and adjectives; here, nouns are the subject of her deft, witty verse. With humor, style and succinct, admirable precision, she summarizes everything most people will ever need to know about this particular area of grammar. Gloriously colorful illustrations, as usual--though a final, unadorned page hints at editorial economy in the face of an unexpectedly long text. Still, a treasure.
