George Marshall has always been fascinated by words and languages. He is the author of several children's reference books, including four titles in the Chambers Fun with English series. He lives in Surrey, England.
Revised from the 2003 edition, this new combination dictionary and thesaurus has a slightly more sophisticated look with the same basic features. Students can learn proper pronounciation, parts of speech, and spelling tips. Illustrations accompany many of the entries, and full page spreads on random topics add interest.
