Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up—This pocket dictionary boasts 12,000 syonyms, 10,000 antonyms, and 2,000 homonyms. Word entries in bold are presented alphabetically and offer synonyms, and then antonyms in parentheses. For example, the entry for "daft" includes synonyms such as "silly" and "idiotic" and antonyms such as "sane" and "practical." Common homonynms (e.g., their, there, they're) are featured in the second section of the book. A brief review of "The Parts of Speech" and "Four Kinds of Sentences" and a "Glossary of Grammar Terms" are also featured. For patrons who might find traditional, large-volume reference books daunting, this useful and portable source may be less intimidating.—Cara Moffett, A.R. Lewis Elementary School, Pickens, SC
