Overview Rare ord

What is a mucofagus? And what does it mean to be an ailurophile?

People may think that children don´t like words they do not understand. But weird words are not dangerous. Weird words are fun! In this book you will find 356 strange, funny and mysterious words that pique curiosity and expand your vocabulary. Some of them are old-fashioned, quirky words that maybe your grandmother or grandfather knows. Others have their roots in Greek or Latin and might be scientific, but are just as funny and whimsical. Learning from this book, children can impress the grown ups.

Helene Uri is an expert in words, and together with internationally renowned illustrator Kristin Roskifte, she has created this playful, colourful and exuberant celebration of weird words. This is a book for forward thinking parents who want to give their children a head start, and also a perfect gift for children aged 6 years and up.

And if you where wondering - a mucofagus is a snot eater. The rest of the answers you will find in the book.
