A spelling book that brings situational humour to 200 tricky words anyone can learn in an intelligent and virtually effortless way.

Each tricky word is a cartoon that helps connect the word’s meaning and graphical features with its spelling pattern. The spelling hints are visual mnemonics. The book is structured around:

  • confusing pairs of words (e.g. homophones and other words that ‘go together’)
  • tricky everyday words
  • tricky formal/academic words

A practical reference manual; black-and-white cartoons can be photocopied to create personalised spelling artwork. See some sample pages here.

The suggested spelling method is very popular with visual learners and those with dyslexia and have been used by the author for well over a decade.

Recommended ages 12 – adult. Adult guidance is recommended for younger children may require.
