Christine Maxwell worked as a teacher in Oxford in the 70s. It was while teaching that she came up with the idea to write a dictionary that her own students could use even if they did not know how to spell. She wrote The Dictionary of Perfect Spelling in 1977 and it became an international bestseller. In 2005 she wrote the hugely successful revised edition for Barrington Stoke. She lives in France. Julia Rowlandson trained as a Primary school teacher and now works as an Educational Consultant. She was the Editor of the revised edition of the Dictionary. She was formerly Deputy Head of More House School.
"This book is brilliant for my son who has dyslexia. He can look up words the way he 'thinks' they are spelt, and the correct spelling clearly appears next to them. Helps also to boost his confidence." - Parent, Amazon Review 'A useful addition to any key stage 2 or 3 classroom' - Writeaway 'The Barrington Stoke school dictionary allows children with specific spelling difficulties to use a dictionary just like anybody else... The children I have introduced this dictionary to like it very much, and find it easy to use.' - Teacher "It's brilliant! And for all those who struggle to spell it really is a fantastic help! ... This dictionary is so easy to navigate and a big help for reluctant spellers of all ages." - Family Magazine
