Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sage has misheard and misunderstood one of Mrs. Page's weekly vocabulary words. Her error leads to a humbling catastrophe: a momentous tragedy, in front of the entire class. Can Sage turn her vocabulary disaster: an event bringing great misfortune, into a triumph: a true success?

Anyone who has ever been daunted: discouraged or disheartened, by a mere word in the dictionary will cheer wildly: in a manner lacking all restraint, as Sage transforms embarrassment into victory in Debra Frasier's touching story of loving--and mistaking--our glorious language.

Synopsis:

A riotous vocabulary calamity!

When Sages spelling and definition of a word reveal her misunderstanding of it to her classmates, she is at first embarrassed but then uses her mistake as inspiration for the vocabulary parade. Full color.

Miss Alaineus, first of all, is a good play on words! The story offers a great lesson on how a potentially negative experience can be turned around to be a truly wonderful inspiration. It's a great lesson for children of all ages.
