Only a superhero like WordGirl, endowed with power punches and dictionary strength, can put the word-wrenching scoundrels back in their place!
Disguised as mild-mannered 5th grader Becky Botsford, WordGirl arrived on planet Earth when she and her monkey sidekick, Captain Huggy Face, crashed their spaceship. In classic superhero form, WordGirl possesses superhero strength with the added benefit of a colossal vocabulary. WordGirl has a family and friends who have no idea of her secret identity or that she battles and prevails over evil (albeit ridiculous and comical) villains. Each book introduces new vocabulary words and will reinforce their meaning in a variety of contexts.
