A new unique Roald Dahl Dictionary from Oxford. This is not an ordinary dictionary. After all, you wouldn't expect an 'Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary' to be ordinary, would you? Lots of dictionaries tell you what an 'alligator' is, or how to spell 'balloon' but they won't explain the difference between a 'ringbeller' and a 'trogglehumper', or say why witches need 'gruntles' eggs' or suggest a word for the shape of a 'Knid'.

This dictionary does all those things. All the words that Roald Dahl invented are here, like 'biffsquiggled' and 'whizzpopping' to remind you what means what, but that is not all. You'll also find out where words came from, rhyming words, synonyms and lots of alternative words for words that are overused.

Oxford Children's Dictionaries are perfect for supporting literacy and learning and this is the world's first Roald Dahl Dictionary from the word experts at Oxford University Press.

With real citations from Roald Dahl's children's books and illustrations by Quentin Blake, this is authoritative, engaging and accessible and will inspire and encourage young writers and readers.

This hardback book has 287 pages and measures: 25 x 19.5 x 2cm

Our 20 year old daughter could read fluently aged 4 & a half..

I remember her Dad & I taking her to open her first bank account at the Halifax Building Society in Meadowhall, Sheffield..We played I Spy & asked her to find the word Mortgage , Insurance etc on the

posters on the walls which she did almost immediately...Other people were amazed..

She grew up a book worm,has a Kindle but prefers books, usually has 3 or 4 on the go at once..
