 Dear Deer: A Book of HomophonesAuthor: Gene Barretta (on JOMB)
Illustrator: Gene Barretta
Published: 2007 Henry Holt and Co. (on JOMB)
ISBN: 0805081046 Amazon

Fabulously friendly, humorous illustrations and silly tongue twisting text aside, who would have guessed that a book highlighting use, meanings and spellings of identically sounding words could be so fascinating to a seven year old reader? We didn’t, but it is.

Other books mentioned:

HOTLINE VOICES: PJ Rooks tells us about The Day they Parachuted Cats Into Borneo: A Drama of Ecology (play by Charlotte Pomerantz scenery by Jose Aruego) which is, sadly, out of print.
