A Great Read for educators, parents, laughter and learning!
"I had a dog named Wallet. He was a brown lab. I liked him a lot, but my mother shot him for snacking between meals."


"The first words out of my grandpa's mouth when he went on a blind date with my grandma: 'He! You aren't ugly!,' which was not the greatest thing to say."


"The Jazz Age was when women chucked their Victorian undergarments."


Humorous situations frequently develop unintentionally - with innocence. In school, students often write serious statements that result in some very odd and very funny mind-pictures.


TWISTED WORDS contains excerpts from teen writings about family, jobs, history, school and sex that Robert Rubinstein collected during 32 years of teaching middle school.
