This condensed second edition, self-published by first-time author Frank, was meticulously compiled to help daughter Gabrielle conquer spelling challenges. Although perfect-bound, the book's pages are printed longways and best navigated flip-style. One-line entries are alphabetized: bold-faced correct spellings appear amid a greater number of phonetic spellings. Although an excellent concept, the phonetic spellings sometimes reflect a highly individualized experience of a word's sound and do not account for regional accents. Still, an inspiring personal story.
