    Gleebooks review:
    If, like me, you love language and lament the decrease of vocabulary in everyday use, this is an essential addition to your personal library. One of the joys of English is the adoption of expressions from other languages; why not enrich yourself with these? ‘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? This hand-picked collection of untranslatable worlds from all over the world celebrates the magic of language, with gorgeous original artwork and fascinating facts about each word and the culture it comes from.’ Lynndy
