[Wild Things cover]

While I keep talking about producing an e-book, my husband has now published two. The second one, Wild Things in the German language, is a book for word lovers of any language. It combines anthropomorphic animal drawings with descriptions of German compound words that lend themselves to discussions of similar words in English and show how vocabulary words are often derived from concrete experience.
