Funny short stories about school life with language
games and exercises.
Loty Petrovits-Andrutsopulou, through the humorous
texts of this collection, offers an original way for
a child's more profound contact with the words. What
happens if we change a verb with its opposite in a sentence?
What is the meaning of our sentences, if we take away
some of their syllables? All these are presented in
a cheerful, original way and make the readers able to
understand that language is a living organism which,
although it can play, it does not allow violent interventions
in its structures."
Manos Kondoleon, DIADROMES magazine - no 18, Summer
"...A book title that does not deceive the reader:
the authoress skillfully narrates stories for playing
and laughing. Artfully, by adding or taking out syllables,
she creates an atmosphere of joy as well as learning.
She invites the reader to join in so as not only to
play but learn new things as well. Game stories that
you can enjoy with friends or alone..."
