"The topic of alliteration is a natural for the Words are CATegorical series. It doesn't take Cleary long to explain what alliteration is: 'When words are close together and they start with the same sound, it's called alliteration, as in, 'Frances froze and frowned.' ' After reiterating that it's a repeated beginning sound that matters, even when the letters are different, the text gives multiple examples of alliteration, including those with double and triple letters, such as cheesy chips and strung streamers. The concluding pages encourage readers to keep on the lookout for alliteration in poems, songs, street signs, and 'in talk and texts and tweeting.' Wildly colorful, Goneau's cartoon illustrations turn the rhythmic, rhyming verses into comically exaggerated little dramas. While many children's books use alliteration, few actually define it or talk about it. This playful yet practical book will help kids grasp the concept." Booklist
