The ultimate author's handbook

Since reading this dictionary cover to cover, I have written:
- A mystery novella about a dilapidated mansion and a ridiculous disguise.
- A short horror story about a beady-eyed crab and an overripe banana.
- An information booklet about how to fix a leaky canoe.

I've used approximately 85% of the words in this book so far. I very much look forward to using the rest.


You've all had the experience of wanting to unlock that next level, find the hidden Easter egg, snag the coolest, rarest gear. These same incentives lead to the invisible learning of vocabulary. The stars kids gather to reach higher levels, and the coins they use to buy cool swag, are only available once they've completed the word games!

We know that one exposure is simply not enough to really learn a word. That's why we've designed our books and games to be used together, unlocking a funner, richer way to boost vocabulary. Learn more!
