101 Weird Words (and 3 Fakes) is a mini-dictionary jam-packed with unusual or interesting words, followed by a fun and descriptive definition for each one. Filled with silly pictures and strange wordy facts, this is a book to sweep the reader through the alphabet from AMBIDEXTROUS (no repeated letters) to ZUGZWANG (not a place you want to visit), with a generous sprinkling of riddles, puzzles, and bonus facts. For an extra challenge, try to spot the three fakes in the collection. Is it YARG--the cheese that turned its maker backwards? Or maybe JUFFLE--the semi-jig, semi-shuffle you do on a zebra crossing? Only a true word detective will crack the case
