" I say 'read' but it's a dictionary. You don't read them, as such! I have flicked through and it is a fun way to present vocab, grammar rules, synonyms etc to young readers & authors. If I was still teaching, I would definitely be recommending it to parents and children alike. " said.

" Wordsmiths and Dahl fans young and old will find this dictionary delightful, didactic, delectable, and diverting! Did you know that abecedarium is an old fashioned reference to the alphabet? Well, I learned that on the very first page! I can't wait until this is released in hardcover. I will add it to to a place of honor next to my other Oxford dictionary. **I received a free copy of this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. " said.

" A copy of this book was generously provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Well, this is most definitely not your average dictionary. Contains regular words, as well as those words we know only Roald Dahl can concoct. There are examples, illustrations by the always amazing Quentin Blake, and more content that you can poke a stick out. This would make a great gift for any Dahl enthusiast. " said.

" A Roald Dahl dictionary? This is pure genius. The dictionary, aside from having definitions (duh), include sentences with examples of the words from many of Dahl's fabulous books. Some definitions also include a "Did you know?, rhymes, synonyms and tons of other quirky information. This is truly an enjoyable dictionary that children will enjoy. *I received an ARAC via NetGalley & Oxford University Press in exchange for an honest review. " said.

" It may seem funny to review a dictionary, but when it is put out by Roald Dahl it is a must read. This is a dictionary like no other. It includes real words, Dahl special invented words, characters, you name it. It is laid out in a fun way and includes illustrations. There are actually instructions in the beginning of the book that tell you how to use a dictionary, plus “did you know” facts and “look it up” clues for various words. A very well done dictionary. " said.

" I received this book from Net Galley in exchange for a fair review.5+ Stars!Anyone who says that this isn't a wonderful children's dictionary is talking bugswallop! It's wondercrump! Any child who loves Dahl's books will love this dictionary. It's also an excellent classroom companion for reading/teaching Dahl's books and understanding his word development. It's wacksey, too! 288 pages, with thorough references for Dahl's created words.Strong recommend! Truly a delight. " said.

"What a perfectly wonderful tribute to a wonderful author (if not always a wonderful human being). This book combines the recognizable illustrations of Dahl's books with the wonderfully creative language of the author himself. This book not only teaches about the language that Dahl used, but how he created his words. A nice combination. I wish that there had been more live links (for instance, being able to jump to a specific letter of the dictionary or being able to jump to a section when the book said "see [this] for more details.")" said.

"The Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary is a wonderful companion to his books; an excellent addition to any library, in fact.

This is without question an ideal book for young readers who are reading, or have read, Dahl's books. The fun nature of the dictionary coupled with his delightful books will help to make young readers into lifelong readers and learners. Reading and learning should be fun and this definitely makes it so.

Adults will also enjoy the playfulness of this dictionary, as well as taking you back to your childhood and how the newness of words so often led down completely new avenues.

Reviewed from a copy made available by the publisher via NetGalley.
