ACHUKA Book of the Day Tues 17 Dec 2019
Beautifully designed organised and presented, with copious use of Quentin Blake illustrations, this is a book to put in the hands of any young person with a relish for language.
Using Dahl as her inspiration, Susan Rennie has created a themed thesaurus that is much more practical and useful than the traditional alphabetical A-Z of synonyms.
A thesaurus for all chiddlers and even some adult human beans, featuring hundreds of spliffling words used and created by the world’s best storyteller, Roald Dahl, together with useful synonyms, related words and phrases, idioms and word origins.
Cleverly organised into phizz-whizzing themes, from vegitibbles to outer space, it is easy to find new and interesting words while you are writing. Be inspired by the special WRITING HUT pages to craft your own brain-boggling creatures and characters, just like Roald Dahl. This mischievous thesaurus captures Oxford University Press’s language expertise and mixes it with the magic of Roald Dahl. Whether telling curdbloodling stories or imagining bugswallop, you will soon be using the Oxford Roald Dahl Thesaurus as your golden ticket to dream!
