At a school called Walla Walla, there is a little girl named Lulu. She began making up all types of words like wowie-zowie and higgledy-piggledy while trying to give excuses for not doing her homework. Then her teacher got mad and took her to the principal?s office. Lulu?s unusual speech was contagious and the principal and the teacher began speaking the same way. The nurse said Lulu has ?opened up a knock ?em, sock ?em, wibble-wobble word warp.? This caused word craziness throughout Walla Walla. How will it ever stop?

The reason why I like the story is because it is a good book. My favorite part is when the teacher, Mrs. Bell, said, ?Lulu, let?s go to the principal? because everybody said different words twice like yak-yak, hee-hee, my-my, lookie-lookie, shh-shh. Lulu reminded me of somebody in my class because she tried to make up an excuse about not doing her homework.

The reason why you should read this book is because if you like tongue twisters or tricky words like I do, this would be the perfect book for you to read.
