Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary
by Contributor Susan Rennie, Illustrator Quentin Blake, Contributor Roald Dahl and Oxford Dictionaries
Author: Contributor Susan Rennie, Illustrator Quentin Blake, Contributor Roald Dahl and Oxford Dictionaries
Finally, a dictionary of real and invented words used by the world's best storyteller, Roald Dahl.
The Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary reveals what they mean, where they came from and how he used them in his stories. It will inspire you to choose and use each word brilliantly in your own writing - whether it's a real word, a Roald Dahl word or your own made-up one! This swashboggling hardback book has been published to coincide with the 100th anniversary of Roald Dahl's birth this September. It's packed full of colour illustrations and is suitable for ages 8+ (but Roald Dahl fans of any age will adore this!)
Explore Roald Dahl’s imaginative language and vocabulary and trace the origins of these words, from the "scrumdiddlyumptious" words of The BFG and his penchant for "gobblefunk" to the terrible insults of Matilda's Miss Trunchbull and James Trotter's awful aunts. We're pretty certain you'll LOVE this book!
