Unlimited loans, 2 years, One at a time

A picture book about homonyms starring a silly cast of animal athletes.

What is a homonym? It's a word that has different meanings but is always spelled the same.
This informative book, set at a sporting event, includes a BAT who can BAT! A karate-chopping bulldog who is tough enough to BREAK five boards without taking a BREAK, and a STEER who tried to STEER his skateboard, but accidentally fell into a well?and that?s just for starters.

The clever wordplay from Gene Barretta introduces children to the richness of language through homonyms.
