Synopsis:

Winner - NSW Premier's Literary Award
CBCA honour Book and Junior Judges' Project Winner

Dear Readers,

You may not know me, but I know you. I am - the WORD SPY.

Ever since I can remember, I've been listening to, speaking, reading and writing and, yes, spying on words. The time has come for me to share with you some of the many things I have discovered. All you have to do is open this book . . . the wonderful world of words awaits!

Join the WORD SPY on an entertaining journey through the English language. Learn more about the alphabet came from, find out what ATM stands for, make up your own palindromes (it's easy!) and impress your friends by speakling Pig Latin. There are cartoons, riddles and a special code to solve along the way.

'Giddy . . . exuberant . . . playful . . . thoroughly engaging.'
KIRKUS REVIEWS, USA?

'A magic carpet ride through 4000 years of language.'
SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

'A marvellous exploration of the nuances and richness of English . . . a valuable addition to any child's library.'
