A Web Untangled

Spinning Straw into Gold

Meet the Author

A lifelong reader, writer, and logophile, Evelyn Dunbar Webb is the recipient of numerous awards for her children’s stories, poetry, and essays.

After more than four decades as a mother, business owner, English teacher, and workshop instructor, she returned to her first love—spinning tales—in 2016. When she is not writing, she spends her days reading, drawing, or gardening.

A native of Connecticut now living in rural central Virginia, Evelyn shares a home with her husband, a mountain of books (many hand-me-downs), and the occasional grandchild.

Priscilla is a word collector. She collects all sorts of words.

The problem is, although Priscilla collects lots of words, all she does is write them in large notebooks. She never, ever shares her words.

And because of this, she never, ever makes friends.

She wants to make friends, but she doesn’t know how.

She needs help.

But who can help her?

Read Priscilla’s adventure with word collecting to find out how she solves her problem, and, in the process, discovers how to use the words she has collected.

Praise for The Word Collector:

I liked how it was a story going along with it as it teaches you new words. And for kids that don't understand friendship it teaches them that too! (Levi, age 9)

The author is first and foremost an excellent story teller. I loved the story line about the power of words and the illustrations are wonderful. The soft voice the author uses to pronounce the words is very soothing to the ears. Priscilla is the cutest ostrich I have ever seen, especially when she sticks her head in the sand! I just love her! I highly recommend this book - your children will learn and fall madly in love with Priscilla! (MaryAnn Touchette)

Perfect companion for grammar lessons! Strengthens the concept of parts of speech while teaching life lessons about sharing and making friends. My grandson loved the story, as well as the gorgeous illustrations throughout--Priscilla is so adorable! This would be a wonderful tool for traditional teachers or home-school teachers to reinforce nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs lessons! (Caroline Reichard, author Between Shadow's Ears)
