Punished by David Lubar
"Eyebrows the shelves to see what's new." "Baseball is a batter game." " I don't field like football." These and other puns are all throughout this story of Pun-ished.     Logan is just your average kid who likes pizza and baseball, but when he gets caught playing tag inside the library, he gets "punished." No, he is not banned from entering the library, but Logan is under a magic spell. He can only say puns and the only way he can be cured is to find  seven oxymorons, seven anagrams, and seven palindromes. He has to find all of these word combinations within three days.  With the help of his friend Benedict, his little sister, and even a Scrabble game, Logan is determined to find them all. Will Logan do it? Will he even have fun in the process of searching for these weird words? And, just who is this librarian, Mr. Robert Wordsworth? Will the laughter and groans never stop? Read this book to find out. A funny book written by a funny author. Recommended for students in grades 3-5.
