The Dictionary of Difficult Words

By Written by Jane Solomon; Illustrated by Louise Lockhart

Although it’s technically a children’s book and includes a lesson on the parts of speech, this whimsically illustrated dictionary includes some words that might even be new to many adult readers (“catoptromancy,” anyone?). It would make a great gift for the young bookworm in your life or a fun addition to your own collection.
