Read full description of the books:

I recently read Anne Fadiman's The Wine Lover's Daughter. Fadiman writes about herself and her father, Clifton Fadiman.

Clifton loved his wine and the lavish lifestyle he provided for his family through his radio shows, literary journalism, and various other jobs he had. At the root of his life are WORDS. Even to his dying breath Clifton loved words.

When Anne was a child, her father made up stories about Wally the Wordworm. Eventually those stories became a charming children's book called Wally the Wordworm. In this story hungry Wally goes into a dictionary and eats all manner of Words. He enjoyed Sesquipedalian and Palindromes, but did not much care for Paradichlorobenzene.

Wally was always looking for words he did not know because he knew that if he ate new, challenging, words, he would grow. Eating words that were small or simple or that he already knew, might take the edge off of his hunger, but they would not help him grow. So, he explored the dictionary looking for the best words to eat.

The illustrations by Lisa Atherton are dazzling and make the story come alive.

Sadly, this book is no longer in print. Perhaps there will be a renewed interest in this kind of a clever children's book and it will be republished?
