The Dictionary of Difficult Words




If your kids love learning new words, they'll be delighted with the new Dictionary of Difficult Words, written by lexicographer Jane Solomon and illustrated by Louise Lockhart. This beautiful hardback dictionary contains over 400 interestingly difficult words to discover.

What is a bumbershoot? Or a moonbow? What does it mean when someone absquatulates?

You can find out the meaning of these words and much more in this new book written for children between the ages of 7 and 12. Test your knowledge with words that will amaze, confuse, and inspire budding wordsmiths (and adults who will also find the book very engaging.)

Each word entry includes a pronunciation guide, part of speech identification, and a precise definition. The modern illustrations bring the words to life and brighten up the pages with splashes of bold colours. This dictionary celebrates the beauty of the English language for family trivia time spent around the printed page.

Recommended for anyone with a passion for words as young as 7, the Dictionary of Difficult Words is a perfect addition to any home library.
