This is a clever and unusual story: a timeslip adventure that all starts with words and their histories … and a very curious dictionary. The aptly named Al and Lexi Hunter discover that they are in fact word hunters: able to travel back in time to learn the heritage of certain words and certain names… just where will their adventures take them next? And can they always be certain to get home safely??
An entertaining story with delightful illustrations that add to the appeal. ou may also like to check out the Word Hunters website here.
