In The Word Collector, Sonja Wimmer playfully weaves an intricate tale of words as objects, to be collected and saved and treasured. The Word Collector loves words, how they sound, how they look, the feelings they evoke–so she collects them. But then a curious thing happens—and people begin to forget their words and the emotions that they represent. The Word Collector has a job to do! Lovingly illustrated with vivid colors and precious details, The Word Collector is available in English and in Spanish editions.
