At once funny and informative, Yaks Yak presents animals acting out the verbs made from their names.

Illustrations rich in comic details show hogs hogging, slugs slugging, and other spirited creatures demonstrating homographs, words with different meanings that are spelled and pronounced the same. A chart listing the words, their meanings, and their history is included.

Ideal for sharing, this book offers a sprightly and fanciful introduction to a fun form of wordplay from Newbery Medalist Linda Sue Park.
