Some people collect bugs or coins or stamps. Jerome collects words. Big words, small words, dreamy words, sad words - he has all types of words in his collection. One day, when he is transporting his well-organized collection of words, he trips and the words get all mixed up together. This gets him thinking, and he starts experimenting with words, writing poetry and songs that touch people and help him communicate more completely. Filled with the knowledge of words that he has and the joy that it brings him, Jerome decides to set his collection of words to the wind, sharing them with everyone else.
