Picturebook creator Chris Judge tackles 'eggcorns', those entertaining jumbles of words produced when children mispronounce words or phrases they have heard. From 'buttonup squash' to 'earplane' Chris's light-touch illustrations present these misused words in a format designed to make children laugh out loud and think about where these words and phrases come from.
