Synopsis

The Spelling Bee Before Recess by Deborah Lee Rose

Learning one's spelling words and participating in spelling bees are a nationwide ordeal for every American kid. At the school, the finals are down to three kids: The Slugger, Cornelius The Genius and Ruby. The narrator, The Slugger , uses baseball imagery and metaphor to tell the tale of who wins and how the other contenders strike out. In the background, in true Carey Ellis fashion, is a subplot of several actual bees buzzing around the contest causing jitters wherever they land. The book includes a list of spelling words used in the book plus two additional lists.
