Ebenezer Has a Word for Everything

Written by Chelsea H. Rowe
Illustrated by Frank Dormer

In her debut picture book, Rowe introduces us to a word collector. Ebenezer collected words the way some people collected stamps. He wrote them in his Word Book. He also loves letters, because they make up words, after all – junction, juggle, and jukebox. One day he meets Fitzgerald, who has ideas but not words to convey them. They write great stories together.

The illustrations are fun and demonstrate the words and how they are made.

The story shows how we sometimes need to collaborate with others who have different talents in order to achieve something worthwhile. Hopefully, the fascinating words Ebenezer collects will also show the reader how wonderful words are and spark their own love of words. How can you resist a swashbuckler that says blimey.
