The Dictionary of Difficult Words has over 400 words which will amaze, intrigue and inspire budding writers and linguaphiles.
All of the words in this book are difficult to spell, hard to say and their meaning is obscure to most children and to adults.
Turning each page is a a delight and you can find many words that sound fantastic and will be just right to confuse the teacher! Many of them confuse MsWord spellcheck too!!
Each word has a pronunciation guide and a delightful illustration entwined with the text. As a family dictionary it will be brilliant for trivia games, scrabble and others, an absolute guide to the question, “Are you sure that is a real word?”
Louise Lockhart is the illustrator, living in England, and working on fascinating projects for Liberty London and The Independent plus others.
Recommend for ages 9-13, but for everyone who loves words.
