Stubborn as a Mule and Other Silly Similes

by Nancy Loewen
Illustrated by Adam Watkins

Are you silly as a goose? Do you laugh like a hyena? Like a monkey? Like a moose? In this introduction to grammar fundamentals, young learners discover the silly world of similes, a figure of speech that compares two things. With laugh-out-loud illustrations and clever, quirky text, this nonfiction picture books young grammarians and the children of language lovers.
