“If horns played cool music, and pants were just clothes....”
Horn, pants, nails, trunk, pitcher — all words that can mean more than one thing. Arlene Alda has put together words and images in a delightful and witty book of photographs as inviting as a pair of juicy pears. Did You Say Pears? takes a playful and very clever look at words that sound the same but have different meanings.

A useful information page explaining the wordplay is included.
Arlene Alda’s photographs challenge the reader to look and look again in this book that is bound to be a family favorite.
