(Preface) 'Words are full of wonder and enchantment, color and sound. They can be serious, or playful, or somewhere in between. For a small child they offer endless chances to explore and experiment, to make sense or nonsense.

Ann Rand, whose use of words is remarkably sensitive and sure, writes about words in a way that will fascinate and delight children and lead them on to discoveries of their own. When she says, "Some words are gay and bright and full of light, like tinsel and silver and sparkle and spin," young readers will find pleasure in thinking of other words that are the same. And they will realize how true it is that "Words tell how you feel: fine and dandy, and I like candy."

With brilliant design, bright color, and bold imagination, Paul Rand interprets the text in pictures of extraordinary beauty and rare humor.'
