?  About our Ebooks


The new revised edition of Lidia Stanton's bestselling book of mnemonics demystifying over 200 of the most difficult spellings. The book is structured around confusing pairs of words, such as homophones or words that 'go together', tricky everyday words and tricky academic words, with memorable illustrations on every page to help you connect the word's meaning and graphical features with how it's spelt.

This is not a traditional spelling book, but a resource that will really get you thinking, and laughing out loud. This guide encourages active learning and recollection, breaking away from repetitive methods such as 'look, cover, write, check', enabling you to effortlessly recall and identify once-confusing spelling patterns.


'This book is a 'brain teaser and brain trainer' - ingenious use of words, memory tips and tricks and lots of humour and amusement - 200 Tricky Spellings in Cartoons has it all. Imaginative ideas and superb graphics presented in a clear user-friendly format. This will appeal to everyone - children, teachers and parents. Readers will wonder how they managed without this book. It can also provide the impetus for children to develop their own strategies. Every school must have this essential book!'
- Dr Gavin Reid, psychologist and author


A brilliant spelling book that uses cartoons and comedy to help you remember how to spell tricky words.
