This was the perfect gift for a small boy who loves football, Hero worships Frank Lampard and is learning to read. It has since been lent to another foorball loving foreign Language student who reads childrens' books to improve His English. A nicely written little book with an imaginative sto ry.
As a teacher I found this of unexpected use for some foreign language students. Many liked a "story" about the origin of a word which Made it interesting to learn English, and enabled them To remember the word more easily. For this reason it is useful, but for a seious student of language it is not adequate- just amusing.
Ireally wanted to like this book. It's author seemed informed and erudite Until I got to Scientology !! As a Scientologist I could not believe the Purile garbage written that I was supposed to believe in. Dear God - what a disappointment as a book which I now doubt Longer believe in.
