What a Wonderful Word is a beautiful book for children that explores the world of untranslatable words. Have you ever wished there was a word for friends who are like family to you, or for the way you hesitate when you've forgotten someone's name? Did you know there was a special word for the distance a reindeer can travel before needing the toilet? Or for when you search for something in the water using only your feet?

Beautifully illustrated with original artwork, this hand-picked collection of untranslatable worlds from all over the world celebrates the magic of language and includes fascinating facts about each word and the culture it comes from.


Hardcover, 64pp, 210 x 210mm
