A silly book with a serious purpose— to help youngsters recognize, remember, and really enjoy making use of a basic vocabulary of 1350 words. A wacky cast of characters reappears all by way of the book, making this perhaps the only dictionary in the planet that is in fact fun to read! Written and illustrated by P. D. Eastman— with aid from the Cat (Dr. Seuss) — this decades-old dictionary pairs words with pictures that carry their meaning, making it easy adequate even for nonreaders to understand.
