words with friends

Do you play Scrabble? 
Do you have a Scrabble Club at school?

Well, Duncan Dorfman does and he has made it to the National School Scrabble Championship. But Duncan Dorfman has a special power: he can "read" printed text by running the fingers of his left hand over the words. This is a great advantage when picking tiles from the Scrabble bag.

V has been telling me to read this book for quite some time. Yesterday she and I downloaded the game Words With Friends and I lost so many games it made my head spin. 

"Now will you read Duncan Dorfman?" she asked.

So I did... and I learned my twos, and "Betsy's Feet", and "bingo stem".

If you think it's cool that Maraschino is an anagram of Harmonicas... then this is the book for you!

So, be sure to get a Scrabble Club started at your school and you can turn Migraine into Imaginer.


  1. THIS is why you've been beating me! Betsy's Feet and Bingo Stem? Do tell.

  2. We will loan you 'The Fingertips of Duncan Dorfman'
