Within its pages, young author Erzsébet Gilbert has delved into the history of the English language to unearth a host of forgotten, quirky, obsolete and utterly bizarre words, and created a phrasebook like no other. It is a dictionary whose entries are not merely words, but the fantastical stories and wild musings behind them—a dictionary of two-headed serpents and royal assassins, warrior birds and people on the moon, specters and true love.
