Book of the week
Inventive and infinitely browsable, this book successfully incorporates Dahl's imaginative flair for language with the more functional purpose of a thesaurus. May not be used in the normal way in a classroom but it is a fun way to inspire kids (and adults!) to more creative writing and you can just immerse yourself in it for ages, flicking back and forth. A total must-have
