Word Rescue

Word Rescue is an incredible adventure for kids who want to rescue all the stolen words from the mean ol' Gruzzles. The Gruzzles can't read, and they don't want anyone else to read. So, they've stolen the words out of all of our books!
Benny Bookworm needs your help to stop the Gruzzles. He needs you to reunite the stolen words with their meanings. Once you join all the words with their pictures, Benny will put them back into the books.
