The Word Collector has even been read in schools by no other than Barack and Michelle Obama.

Here's a brief summary of what the storybook is about...


Jerome is a young boy who absolutely adores the magic of words. He writes them down on paper, cuts them out and pastes them in his scrapbooks.


One day, Jerome's books fall and all the words get scattered. It's then that Jerome discovers that the words can be joined to flow like poetry. Jerome decides to share his special words with the world.
