Greek and Latin for Cryptomaniacs!
Written by Edith Hope Fine

Teleport into Cryptomania!
A San Diego Book Awards Finalist
In Cryptomania!, five CryptoKids build a Teleporter and head for adventure, picking up cool Greek and Latin word chunks along the way.
Decoding big words is fun. Once you know that pachy = thick and derm = skin, you know instantly why hippos, rhinos, and elephants are called pachyderms.
This zany 48-page, full-color picture book is jam-packed:
- Colored language tags in stand-out yellow boxes
- Green (think "G" for Greek)
- Red (think "R" for Roman; the Romans spoke Latin).
- Info boxes (about the Olympics, for instance)
- Handy glossaries—200 roots and affixes
- Greek and Latin to English
- English to Greek and Latin
- Speech bubbles
- The Greek alphabet
- Jokes and riddles
