Review quote

It's wonderful to be working with OUP and Susan Rennie again, following the successful Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary. If anything, the Oxford Roald Dahl Thesaurus is an even more delicious publication, and there is no one better placed than Susan to celebrate Roald Dahl's endlessly inventive use of language. She does so with her trademark wit and expertise, focusing not only on the WORDS my grandfather carefully chose and/or invented for his beloved
tales, but taking us deep into the WORLDS of his stories in a brand new way. Each page, packed with photos and Quentin Blake illustrations, is so inviting, you find yourself exploring another and another and another. The Oxford Roald Dahl Thesaurus is a glorious treat for all Roald Dahl fans. What delights me even
more is that I think it's going to offer a huge boost to less confident young readers and writers and give them practical tips and tools to help them enjoy playing with language and spinning their own splendiferous stories.
