Review

Cache of Jewels was the first Ruth Heller book to play with grammar and usage. Here she deals with collective nouns such as flock, army, herd and, of course, cache. Some of them are so common, we've forgotten they are collective nouns and others are rare and intriguing. It's the illustrations that lift the book beyond nice to superb. Each collective noun gets its own meticulous and mind-expanding spread. The word use is demanding but is not beyond the reach of many who will enjoy this book, making it a word-lovers delight.
