This is not an ordinary dictionary. After all, you wouldn't expect an Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary to be ordinary, would you? Lots of dictionaries tell you what an alligator is, or how to spell balloon but they won't explain the difference between a ringbeller and a trogglehumper, or say why witches need gruntles' eggs or suggest a word for the shape of a Knid.

All the words that Roald Dahl invented are here, like biffsquiggled and whizzpopping, to remind you what means what. You'll also find out where words came from, rhyming words, synonyms and lots of alternative words for words that are overused.

Oxford Children's Dictionaries are perfect for supporting literacy and learning and this is the world's first Roald Dahl Dictionary from the word experts at Oxford University Press. With real citations from Roald Dahl's children's books and illustrations by Quentin Blake, the Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary will inspire and encourage young writers and readers.
