Humans are storytelling creatures. It's how we make sense of the world. Children naturally tell stories, but when words fail them, they become stuck, often frustrated.

Traditional dictionaries don't help, either. Finding and comprehending the right information can be tricky. Applying that information is harder still. Plus, they're boring!

We wanted to create a dictionary that was both easy to navigate and inspiring. One that was based on how language is actually used, without the confusing symbols. A high ratio of hilarious illustrations to words is the icing on the cake, and makes the Storyteller's Illustrated Dictionary a breeze for even the most reluctant learners.
