Written by Amy Krouse Rosenthal

What do you get when you combine a word and a number?
A wumber! Amy and Tom cre8ed this s2pendous book that's
perfect 4 readers in kindergar10 and up!

"Acceler8 your thinking! Rosenthal and Lichtenheld continue their successful collaboration with a collection of word puns that substitute numbers for letters, text-message style. Kids will pick up new vocabulary and they'll enjoy the cultural references. Don't worry about reading aloud: wumbers are easy to decode if you pay a10tion."

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"A true testament to phonological awareness-the ability to hear the smaller sounds that make up words-if ever there was one, the wumbers also encourage kids to slow down and think. If mumbling repeatedly out loud does not yield the answer right away, Lichtenheld's bright pen-and-pastel illustrations will help readers spell it out."
