Gr. 2-4, younger for reading aloud. From the Words Are Categorical series, which began with Cleary's A Mink, a Fink, and Skating Rink: What Is a Noun. (1999), this slim volume offers a child-friendly introduction to pronouns. The rhythmic, rhyming text gives simple explanations and examples of types of pronouns and their uses. Grammar mavens may take exception--or find exceptions--to the comment that "who" is "a pronoun that's constantly doing," but on the whole the text presents the major uses of pronouns with precision, brevity, and wit. The cartoon-style ink drawings brim with irrepressible humour, while the bold use of colour in the artwork adds to the high-spirited look of the pages. Coloured letters make the pronouns easy to identify in text that dance across the pages. An energetic, cheerful addition to grammar lessons. Carolyn Phelan
