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

Find out all this and more in the Dictionary of Difficult Words. Test your knowledge with more than 400 words to amaze, confuse and inspire budding wordsmiths (and adults). All of the words featured in this book are difficult to spell, hard to say and their meanings are obscure to most children (and most adults)! Written with simple, easy-to-understand definitions by lexicographer Jane Solomon, this dictionary celebrates the beauty of the English language for family trivia time spent around the printed page.

A beautiful big book written by Jane Solomon and illustrated by Louise Lockhart.

    I am giving this to my 11-year-old granddaughter, Hazel, who will love everything from the charming illustrations and a wonderful world of useful, funny, who knew, arcane, silly, show-off, happy-making words! From Artful to Zestful!
