Quirky, Jerky, Extra Perky: More about Adjectives

One book is never enough to explore the wide range of amazing adjectives!

The crazy cats deliver loads of additional examples to illustrate the potent power of adjectives to describe the wonderful world around us—and our incredible imaginations.

Brian P. Cleary’s playful verse and Brian Gable’s comical cats turn traditional grammar lessons on end. Each adjective is printed in color for easy identification.

Read this book aloud and share the delight of the sense—and nonsense–of words.


“Cleary offers more examples of the descriptive words in this upbeat, energetically illustrated book. Beginning with a straightforward definition of the word adjective, Cleary takes off with a series of imaginative examples presented in rhythmic, rhyming verses.” (Booklist)

“This book could be used as a read-aloud in language units. The humor is entertaining enough to invite a few laughs from the students. The illustrations are colorful, silly, and bright.”Ā (School Library Journal)
