Punished by David Lubar


image from LibraryThing

Another great read aloud!

This is the story of Logan. Logan and his friend are playing tag in the basement of the library when Logan gets stopped by a mysterious man... and punished.

Really he is PUNished. From that moment on everything that comes out of his mouth is a pun. It's fun at first. Then his life begins to fall apart. He gets in trouble at school, sent to the principal who luckily enjoys his puns. But, Logan wants this to stop.

He makes his way back to the library and finds the man again. That's when he begins his quest to break the curse. He has 3 days to find seven palindromes, seven anagrams and 7 oxymorons or he will be cursed with a life of puns.

My class was eager to find examples of puns, palindromes, anagrams and oxymorons. ( all words they didn't know before we started reading.) Lubar made this task fun!

We enjoyed this one too!

This is a great book to use for Language Arts lessons. The kids loved it and you can refer to it again and again. Once again, thanks for the recommendation.
