For adventurous readers of all ages... a book of nonsense, old and new... a playful text, like a game to share, a challenge... an absurd-word wrangle-mangle, a story-stew.… We call them tongue twisters

This beautifully presented and fully illustrated new collection presents many English-language favorites, some old and some newly made, to try twisting your tongue to. Dip in and out, or attempt to read all the way to the end in one sitting. The word gatherings get harder as the book goes on, but each gets easier, of course, once you have a go.

Read these words carefully and out loud. Follow the book's path as it turns and twists, as it stoops and stumbles. Keep up as it baffles your brain and shifts your senses. Try saying them as fast as you can. Delight in the confusion and test yourself. You'll soon get the hang of it. 

Can you read this book? We look forward to finding out. Have fun with these delightful tongue twisters
