This is a great little Thesaurus for secondary school children, this nicely laid out thesaurus is easy to use and visually good on the eye.
The key words are in blue making them stand out from the other text. There are also enough word definitions and options for the average student to keep them busy story writing for some time.

Brought it for my son who love referring to it. Only downside is that many of the words he wants to search is not present in it so he's got to go back to the dictionary. Good for a beginner.
