Local Description

>> An Oxford Thesaurus of Roald Dahl's magic and mischief <<

Description

This is a treasure trove of lickswishy language to inspire children to write creatively. Organised thematically, it dives into the Roald Dahl worlds of Human Beans, the Natural World, Magical World and the World of Words. Working in themes makes it easy for children to discover hundreds of invented words and real words for their own stories. It is full of endlessly inventive vocabulary ideas and information, with a striking and fun design using Quentin Blake's artwork and a mixture of photographs too. Compiled by Susan Rennie, the lexicographer who created the Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary and Roald Dahl's Rotsome and Repulsant Words, this captures Oxford University Press's language expertise, mixes it with the magic of Roald Dahl's language and delivers a unique and inspired book that is a joy to own.
