Review

This book has no cohesive plot and instead conglomerates a series of “wordles,” a term for homophonetic phrases such as “Heroes” and “He rows.” In this sense, I Scream is not a story but a list of common homophones unique to the English language. Because of this framework, the book seems overly eclectic and messy—including its illustrations. The images come from a variety of mediums such as drawings and photographs in addition to a variety of inspirations including fairy tales and nature. While the content of the book might prove useful as a resource for teaching homophones, it is mostly void of meaning and value. Not Recommended. Austin Becton, Centennial Library Intern, Cedarville University
