Description: Wonderful dictionary – updated from the original with more contemporary illustrations for the 1980s – featuring all 300 words used in the Key Words Reading Scheme in the form of sentences. For example: The girls have fun with their hats. One girl has a hat on her head. Some of the other girls help her to put it on the right way.
Illustrated throughout with lovely ink and watercolour drawings. Retro transport enthusiasts will particularly appreciate the illustrations of a Leyland National, Triumph TR7, and Austin Allegro!
Glazed pictorial boards. Just the slightest hint of bumping to the spine ends. Corners are straight. Negligible staining on rear endpaper and pastedown, otherwise pages are in excellent condition. A few, neat notes have been lightly inscribed in pencil on the word list, and are easily erased. 'Dot-matrix' price of £1.30 indicates this copy dates from the beginning of the '90s and is likely to be the final reprint.
