Review

English is a rich language full of puns, slang and historical oddities. The Silly Book of Weird and Wacky Words addresses every possible funny wordy subject in a series of lists and games: from jokes, puns and cockney rhyming slang to spoonerisms, made-up languages and more.

A thorough tour through the odd world of our mother tongue, there is much to love and learn in this funny book that should delight young readers - and have parents flicking through, too.
