I adored this book. It was funny and creative. It made me think of John Lloyd and Douglas Adam’s The Meaning Of Liff. It’s a cosy book for anyone who loves words and I now have a word I’ve needed since I was four years old – colourbetical – to describe how I like to put felt pens away. It has also provided me with Tangersuma – an umbrella term for clementines, tangerines, satsumas and mandarins which all look the same in a fruit bowl.
