Feeling UN-happy, UN-loved or UN-confident? UN-decided or UN-sure what you should make for dinner? Lucky for you, the UnStealer is on the loose and he may strike your house next! In this fabulously fun e-story, your family can learn about the sneaky UnStealer and his “UN-canny” ability to track down those pesky “UN” words and leave a trail of Happy, Loved, Confident, Decisive and Sure people in his wake!
Poor Melody Songsing’s birthday party is not going the way she planned! Laffo the Clown is feeling entirely “UN-funny” so none of her guests are having a good time. Melody is extremely “UN-happy”, crying and throwing a fit over her “UN-successful” party. Along comes the UnStealer and he snatches those “UN”s right up turning Laffo into a very funny clown, Melody into a very happy girl and her party into a very successful party. Then, there is poor Miss Garmentina. She is very “UN-decided” about what to wear on her date! She tries on everything she owns and simply cannot make up her mind. Fortunately the UnStealer finds her and takes her “UN” and she is able to find a fantastic and fashionable outfit for her night out on the town. Finally, there is Chompy the “UN-friendly” dog. He barks at everyone and even chases the poor mailman off to Tahiti! Enter the UnStealer, who takes Chompy’s “UN” and transforms him into the most friendly and lovable dog in the neighborhood! Even the postman can’t stay away now!
I absolutely loved this story! Not only are the illustrations bright and beautiful, but the story is funny and engaging as well as educational. What a creative way to teach children about the nuances of language. While your child is enjoying this story, they are learning the effect that “un” has on descriptive words and how removing it turns negative descriptions into positive ones. Each of the pages of the book has several interactive elements that only add to the enjoyment of this story. You can also choose to have the book read aloud by a narrator by simply taping the beginning of the text or you can read it to yourself. Either way, you will “UN-doubtedly” enjoy the tales of the UnStealer!
