Publisher Comments:

A is for apple? B is for ball? Humbug! Forget about that hackneyed gobbledygook. In this lexicon oflinguistic delights, word lovers of all ages will discover that A is for alley-oop, B is for brouhaha, and L is for, well, lollygag ! Packed with quirky illustrations, fun trivia, and lists within lists, this is one humdinger of a dictionary.

Not only do I adore this book, my 9 year old son thinks it's great too. We look up words together some mornings, each choosing a word for the day, jot them on a piece of paper which we tuck in our pocket and then pull it out to use throughout the day. Our most recent gems inclue logorreah, long shanks, lickety split, and lollygag. Even my 5 year old picks a word of the day and enjoys using and hearing the word. I appreciate that our knowledge base of words is growing! It's written in "everyday language" and humorously uses examples and explanations I can relate to. I'm afraid I'll run out of words to learn though so I wish it were bigger.
