Breezier, Cheesier, Newest, and Bluest:
What Are Comparatives and Superlatives?

What are comparatives and superlatives? After reading this book, you’ll have a much clearer idea and will be the best at forming these descriptive words! Brian P. Cleary and Brian Gable explain how these forms of adjectives compare nouns, through the cleverest rhymes and illustrations that are sillier than ever. Each comparative or superlative word is printed in color for easier identification.

Breezier, Cheesier, Newest, and Bluest: What Are Comparatives and Superlatives? turns traditional grammar lessons on end. Read it aloud and share in the delight of the sense—and nonsense—of words.

Reviews

“Cleary’s verse sets the tone, clearly setting out to offer entertainment as well as instruction … Gable creates energetic, comical scenes based on a few words; a cast of madcap, dressed-animal characters; and some unusual color combinations. A useful, amusing introduction.” (Booklist)

“Gable’s illustrations are the true stars here, his feline characters brimming with personality … better than many grammar books—definitely one to check out.” (Kirkus Reviews)
