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.
