KA-BOOM! A Dictionary of Comic Book Words, Symbols & Onomatopoeia

Paperback
Shouldn't all dictionaries start with AAAA and end with ZZZZZZZTZZZTZZZ? Ka-BOOM! does: it's a collection of sound effects from comic books, each one rigorously defined and cross referenced. Nowhere has the art of onomatopoeia been raised to higher heights than in the humble comic book. TIME Digital Vol.5 No.5 I was trying to find how to spell EEEUW in a regular dictionary and, of course, that wasn't going to happen. I am a middle school English language arts teacher. While in the process of creating lessons on vocabulary, I discovered KA-BOOM! ...a fun and worthwhile addition to a lesson in which students will create their own dictionaries.
