Format: Paperback
This is a fun, entertaining, educating and informative. Even though it's a dictionary, it's a lovely book to sit down and read through the pages reading the catchphrases with their excellent definitions reminiscing the times when we heard these famous catchphrases be uttered.

This is a very complete book and is very up-to-date (up to time of printing of course). It really is a great family read. It's also a great reference guide for those few catchphrases which we might not know and see being used in newspapers.

It's a must for culture enthusiasts, telly addicts and anyone involved in English language education.
