Is a cat tail a fluffy feline appendage, or a tall plant with a rounded top? Is a bookworm a slithering creature, or just someone who loves to read? These and many more words with double meanings are playfully demonstrated through rhyme and pictures in Double-Talk.

Kids love word play, and they will appreciate the light-hearted touch of whimsey featured in this delightful book. And once they’ve read through the author’s word choices, they’re encouraged to discover some of their own. This would be an enjoyable read for any child with an active imagination.
