Oxford Junior Illustrated Dictionary Synopsis

A dictionary that features over 6000 entries in alphabetical order, with photographs and illustrations.

It includes information for spelling success, punctuation, simple grammar, prefixes and suffixes, word origins, and more.

Oxford Junior Illustrated Dictionary Press 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

‘With identical text to the Junior Dictionary this illustrated version is printed on larger pages and has the alphabet on the outside edges of the pages instead of the top. These changes give this book a younger feel than the non-illustrated version.’ The Wordpool

'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
