Greta von Gerbil & Her Really Large Lexicon
Blair Reeve is back with his second book for children, the comical narrative Greta von Gerbil & Her Really Large Lexicon. Greta is a tiny little rodent with a really large vocabulary and when she strolls around Rodentville using lots of big words, her fellow townsfolk feel insecure. A pair of chipmunks decides to steal her thesaurus, but just before they can destroy it, the local gangsters think of a cunning plan. Find out what happens next as Blair leads us in this exciting word battle!
