Let’s get real – the English language is bizarre. A might be for apple, but it’s also for aisle and aeons. Why does the word “gnat” start with a G but the word “knot” doesn’t start with an N? It doesn’t always make sense in Raj Haldar’s P is for Pterodactyl: The Worst Alphabet Book Ever, but don’t let these rule-breaking silent letters defeat you!
You can’t believe everything you hear. A single word can have many different meanings. And sometimes two words that sound alike can be spelled completely differently. In No Reading Allowed: The Worst Read-Aloud Book Ever, Haldar takes a fresh look at the English language for children and their parents to laugh together. Ptolemy the pterodactyl is back to show us all how absurd and fun language can be when homophones, homonyms, and tricky punctuation are at play.
