Other Wordly


Words both strange and lovely from around the world.

Discover words to surprise, delight, and enamor. Learn terms for the sunlight that filters through the leaves of trees, for dancing awkwardly but with relish, and for the look shared by two people who each wish the other would speak first. Other-Wordly is an irresistible gift for lovers of words and those lost for words alike.

By Yee-Lum Mak and illustrated by Kelsey Garrity-Riley. Published by Chronicle Books, 2016, 64 pages, hardcover.
