Reviews

`It's hard to find the right word to express our levels of excitement around the 'Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary'. Squacking? Jumpsquiffling? Gigantuous? Roald Dahl's inventive, playful use of language is such a key element of his writing, whether he was using existing words in his own mischievous way or inventing extra-usual new ones. It is wonderful to have this dictionary compiled with such expertise, passion and wit by Dr Susan Rennie and the team at OUP. There could be no more fitting way to pay tribute to Roald Dahl in the year of celebrations for his centenary. Best of all, as a fully-functioning dictionary for readers and writers aged eight and above, I hope it serves as a swashboggling source of inspiration for a whole new generation of storytellers.' Luke Kelly, Managing Director of the Roald Dahl Literary Estate and Roald Dahl's grandson`Perfect way to introduce a new generation to Matilda and co' Radio Times`Beautiful . . . PHIZZ-WIZZING indeed!' Cerys Matthews, musician and presenter`Should be a key title in the Dahl centenary year' The Bookseller`This is a real dictionary, full of words written by the worlds best story teller' QuentinBlake.com`An excellently entertaining book for children from 8 to 100-plus. Buy it and enjoy it' Newbury Weekly News`Perfect for reading aloud and anyone who enjoys the sound and feeling of words' Cotswold Life`Picked as one of Julia Eccleshare's Childrens Book of the Year 2016' The Guardian
