A delightful review by Jacqueline Ruiz of Readers’ Favorite saw her truly ‘get’ my message about the joys of antiquated words.
In her review – here – she wrote some wonderful words of her own, describing mine. Welcome statements like –
‘Her poems are quirky and fun to read and, I must say, highly relevant to the meanings of the “extinct” words’, and –
‘If I had to choose my favorite poem from this book, I would have to say “The Great Gadzooks.” I am familiar with the words gadzooks and kerfuffle but in this poem, Larsen gives them a lovelier meaning’, and –
‘This is a great way to remember these words and a delightful resource for introducing children to these long-lost words as well.’
The Gang and I are delighted to find someone else savouring these tasty morsels of vocabulary.
