Book Review: Difference Between

The pocket-size small press book, "The Difference Between by Billy McCall" is clever in both concept and execution. The premise is that each two-page spread compares and contrasts two things that are easily confused with each other. Examples include: Herb vs Spice, Ice T vs Ice Cube, Coffin vs Casket, and Alligator vs Crocodile. (The only addition that I could think of would be Parsley vs Pussy.) Despite the large number of illustrators (and some writing by local celeb Liz Mason), the book holds together really well. It's fun, interesting, and educational. I learned more than a couple of things that will make me a better pedant. Get your copy where I did: Difference Between Book - Quimby's
