Miss Alaineus: A Vocabulary DisasterISBN: 0-15-206053-7
By Debra Fasier
Sage has misheard and misunderstood one of Mrs. Page's weekly vocabulary words. Her error leads to a humbling catastrophe: a momentous tragedy, in front of the entire class. Can Sage turn her vocabulary disaster: an event bringing great misfortune, into a triumph: a true success?
Anyone who has ever been daunted: discouraged or disheartened, by a mere word in the dictionary will cheer wildly:in a manner lacking all restraint, as Sage transforms embarrassment into victory in Debra Frasier's touching story of loving and mistaking our glorious language.
