“The man behind the Words Are CATegorical™ series here introduces puns galore via homophones and homonyms … factoids and visual clues help to decipher the meaning of the puns.” (Publishers Weekly)

“The puns are in bold print and a different color than the rest of the text, and potentially unfamiliar words are explained at the bottom of the page … Sandy’s lighthearted cartoons add to the silliness, and make this a good choice for either browsers or for language-arts lessons.” (School Library Journal)
