Synopsis

Oxford Junior Illustrated Dictionary by Sheila Dignen

A dictionary that features over 6000 entries in alphabetical order, with photographs and illustrations. It contains example sentences by children's authors, such as Dick King-Smith, Jacqueline Wilson and Roald Dahl. It includes information for spelling success, punctuation, simple grammar, prefixes and suffixes, word origins, and more.

Reviews

‘[The Oxford younger dictionaries] make use of a handy letter string running around the margin of each page which highlights the letter in question. This careful emphasis on the alphabet (a fragile skill in the 5-plus age group at whom this dictionary is aimed) is very helpful’. Independent

'Jaunty beginner's dictionary, with easily understood definitions, examples of how words are used, and notes on pronunciation. The mild eccentricity of some entries … only adds to the appeal.' The Independent

'There's grammatical and language information, derivations of words and phrases, 150 colour illustrations, and above all its today feel. Brilliant (very bright and sparkling, very clever, really good and enjoyable).' Huddersfield Daily Examiner
