Melissa's picture book, Ready, Set, GOrilla! offers readers the chance to see wordplay in action - from a GOrilla, a GOpher, and a Cheetah (who is a real cheater!). In this interactive presentation, Melissa will work with children to create their own punny word list that they can incorporate into their creative projects.
