As wonderful as I had hoped Perhaps. What a beauty Although by all intents and purposes this seems like a children s book this is a perfect addition to the library or bookshelf of anyone interested in the English language and all of the weird, wonderful and often underused words that make it so fascinating Each word is clearly defined in accessible, easily understood terms and the correct pronunciation is also given that is of course very helpful The bright, bold colours surrounding the words and the accompanying illustrations make this a must have for schools and local libraries Most regular people don t read dictionaries front to back, but I must admit this is so engaging that I did exactly that That said, it also lends itself well to those wishing to dip in and out at their leisure.There are four pages dedicated to each letter of the alphabet and with some of them being silly sounding they will keep a child s attention It s a fun way to build their vocabulary Specifically designed for children who are intrigued by words and those who wish to perhaps get into reading, this is a superb book The nifty introduction has some wise words regarding the correct way to use a dictionary and also how to establish the meaning of a word through its composition Looking at the last letters of a word can often reveal their meaning e.g phile, ology, graph, ism etc This is the most fun, educational and aesthetically pleasing dictionary you re likely to find Many thanks to Frances Lincoln Children s Books for an ARC.

Every classroom and home should have a copy of this beautiful book to encourage playfulness and joy in language Each word is accompanied by cute, colourful explanations which are child friendly, often giving examples to assist in usage.I learned a few new words, all of which I am planning to use in the near future Kakistocracy a government ruled by the worst peopleUltracrepidarian someone who has very big opinions about things about which they know nothingSesquipidalian someone who knows lots of big words and enjoys using themZeugma a play on words where one word is used in two different contexts in the same sentence e.g She devoured her book and sandwich.I absolutely loved this quirky collection of words and will be getting my hands on a few copies for our school library
