Review Text

With full-colour illustrations throughout, and 187,000 definitions from the Oxford University Press database (that's more than in the Concise Oxford), this has got to be a winner. They squeeze it all in is by keeping etymologies and pronunciations to a minimum and stripping definitions right down. A great present for schoolchildren as well as adults. (Kirkus UK)show more
