Nothing Rhymes with Orange...helps anyone looking for a rhyme find exactly the right word-–right at their fingertips. In this comprehensive guide, you’ll discover easy-to-reference rhymes, as well as sample phonetic spellings to indicate how each group of words should be pronounced and a rhyming sounds cross-reference to help less phonetic folks navigate. Nothing Rhymes with Orange will help you hone your craft along the way.
Says Perigee editor Meg Leder: “I was so excited to work with Hope, because she took a previously old-fashioned reference and streamlined it for the modern audience, making it very useful for today’s rhymers. Plus, she knows her rhyming stuff! The book was in great hands.”
