Wordplay at a new level

Reader reviewed by Alyssa Feller, POD Princess & Graphic Novel Guru

Do you ever get tired of those boring old alphabet books?  I mean, how many times do you need to see the phrase A is for Apple?  Well, L is for Lollygag is here to save the day!


 


This fun little dictionary is packed full of all those words you always hear, but never quite seem to make it into normal speech.  For instance, do you know what hoi polloi means?  What is a mizzenmast?  Never fear, for this dictionary is packed full of all sorts of words that are simply fun to say. 


 


But its also more than just a dictionary.  L is for Lollygag will delight you with all kinds of original illustrations, trivia, and wonderful word lists.  Its just begging to be picked up, and it may just make language fun.  With all sort of quirky and clever words, youll be showing off your newfound vocabulary for your friends in no time. 


 


 Recommended for ages 12 and up.
