From the tough to spell to the downright funny, these are the 365 words all kids should know!
Some words have strange double meanings. Others seem impossible to pronounce. Then there are the words that sound the same but mean something completely different when you change their spellings.

This book is packed with new words, old words, silly words, sporty words, political words, slang words, musical words, foodie words and loads, loads more.
As well as simple definitions of each word, there are pronunciation tips, fun facts and handy mnemonics to help with spelling.

Martina Motzo (Author)
After graduating in Theatre Direction and a master in Scriptwriting, Martina discovered that the best way to tell her stories was actually to draw them - especially those featuring space travels, invisible elephants and gigantic flying toasters.
An enthusiastic fan of imaginary Encyclopedias, Odradeks, and Gonzo from the Muppet show, she is still in love with her first pen she stole from her father's desk when she was 5, the magnificent Indian Ink Rotring Pen 0.1.
Martina lives in Rome, where she works as an illustrator and graphic designer.
