About the Author:

Martin Chatterton has a very amusing cartoon illustration style that is sure to make children smile. He has illustrated numerous picture books, as well as packaging for children's products. Martin lives in the UK.

From Booklist:

Another addition to the proliferating number of children's thesauruses, this book has approximately 100 entries. For each entry term are given the part of speech, a definition, and an illustrative sentence. Synonyms are listed with a sentence to exemplify their use. Sometimes additional synonyms and opposites are listed at the end of an entry. In the margins are cross-references from other words in the alphabetical sequence to the synonym under which they will be found.

There are double-page spreads on such topics as animals, community helpers, sport, and transportation, often out of alphabetical sequence, apparently for format reasons. Ten pages have quizzes or activities of some kind; the answers are on the last page. Two pages list homophones. Cartoonish line drawings appear on most pages, their presumable function being humor and variety. The book is printed in two colors, green and black.

The basic words are appropriately simple for a first thesaurus (e.g., beautiful, leave, sad, work), but the synonyms are often more advanced (e.g., those for noise include racket and din, with hush and silence as opposites). While some sentences are helpful with meaning ("There was such a din, I couldn't hear myself talk"), others are not ("Why are you so gloomy?"). Some words and sentences seem conceptually far beyond what would be expected in a first thesaurus, ("La Scala in Milan is one of the world's great opera houses").

Only libraries intent on building a collection of children's wordbooks need purchase. This is ineffective as a reference book and too unattractive to invite much browsing.
