Imagine a hypothetical country called Hmmm, where the government is a monarchy, and the king has banned figurative language. Everything in Hmmm has become literal, including idioms, so eating your words and climbing a corporate ladder are actual events. This ebook follows Agent N, a new recruit of the Language Underground, a group whose goal is to restore figurative language to Hmmm, and replace the monarchy with a democracy. Along the way, students practice basic algebra and writing, including grammar, spelling, and punctuation. Also, they match figurative phrases with their meanings and create figurative sentences of their own.
