You'll enjoy getting lost in the imaginative land of Ampersand! Cynthia Correll has taken the lowly and familiar form of punctuation for a colorful ride into the realm of possibilities. Her illustrations and flights of imagination transform the keyboard character into a launching pad for a variety of different stories. This book would be a great way to stimulate the creative impulse in an educational setting. Or it can be enjoyed simply for the visual humor, use of color in the illustrations, or for artistic inspiration. This book is highly recommended. – William Devlin, author of We Crown Them All
ampersand • \am-pƏr-sand\ • noun:
