A Charm of Goldfinches and Other Wild Gatherings: Quirky Collective Nouns of the Animal Kingdom (Hardcover)
Delighful... and difficult to choose one's favorite. A Dazzle of Zebra's or perhaps an Unkindness of Ravens? This book charmed me from the staart and it's one my son and I love to quiz one another on the plural of these delightful gatherings of animals.— Lisa
Whether you're an animal lover or a grammar geek, illustrator Matt Sewell has the perfect menagerie of beasts (and beast-related terms) for your reading pleasure. Along with fifty-five gorgeous color illustrations, Sewell presents the unexpected collective nouns used to describe groups of animals on land, in the air, and in the water.
