THAT’S THE TRICK (commonly confused homophones) illustrated by Sarah Dunk and published by Lothian Books.

This fun book for readers of all ages will help sort out the differences between homophones: words that sound the same, are often spelt differently and have completely different meanings.

Knowing how to spell a word that is a homophone is one of the trickiest skills in the English language.

The three hundred homophones in this book are brought alive in humorous sentences, accompanied by comical illustrations, that will provide hours of literary entertainment, encouraging the reader to enjoy words and challenging them to collect their own list of homophones.

It is an invaluable educational tool recommended for mid primary to adult readers.


If you would like Krista to visit your school, to give talks or do some workshops, please contact her via email for pricing and availability.
