13 Words
Words by Lemony Snicket
Illustrations by Maira Kalman
Harper, 2010. Picture book.

Here are 13 words you'll find in this picture book:
Table
Vanilla
Lemon
Everyone
Style
Ladder
Twisty
Eleven
Feathers
Verve
Plunking
Whew
Arias

Of course these aren't THE 13 words the title is referring to. In fact, the 13 words featured on the back cover of the book aren't THOSE 13 words either. However, the 13 featured on the inside flap are actually the aforementioned 13 words. Let's just say there are more than 3 times 13 words in this book, and while the narrative itself might not make perfect sense, the more than 39 words are all lined up in sentences that are strung together into a story that is actually quite amusing. Check it out.
