Children's Literature Comprehensive Database - Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.

"Part of the “Word Fun” series of fifteen books on parts of speech and elements of grammar, this edition explains compound words for early elementary students. Using the picture book format, the story utilizes an imaginary trip down the Mississippi River, taken by animal characters, to define and give examples of compound words, highlighting the compound words with capital letters throught the text. Colorful, cartoon-like illustrations of animals and minimal text combine to attract young readers to the unlimited use of compound words. There are plenty of examples as the story moves along the Mississippi, providing those readers who are having difficulty mastering parts of speech with practice. A follow-up written activity, glossary of new terms, and sources for further study are included." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database

Trisha Speed Shaskan

When Trisha Speed Shaskan was a girl, she wanted to become a superhero. Her mother gave her a Wonder Woman costume. Her dad crafted her a tiara and bracelets out of metal to match. Trisha imagined she could fight evil, fly an invisible airplane, and get anyone to tell the truth. While she didn’t grow up to be Wonder Woman, she still uses her imagination to write stories and to teach creative writing. Trisha has taught creative writing to children and adults for thirteen years. She has published 26 books for children, and more are forthcoming. She has an MFA in creative writing from Minnesota State University, Mankato. Trisha currently lives in Minneapolis with her husband, Stephen, and their cat, Eartha, named after Eartha Kitt, famous for her role as Catwoman.
