Book of the Week

This is a classic from my childhood!  I've already read it twice with my children and am reading it a third time this week with my younger children (who were too young to remember it when I read it the first two times).

When the Prime Minister is asked to create a dictionary, all is going fine until he defines delicious as, "fried fish."  This definition starts disagreements within the kingdom.  And so a young boy is sent among the people to come up with a common decision on how to define the word delicious!  Along the way he is drawn into the mystical world of dwarfs, woldwellers and a young mermaid.

As a project for the week, the kids are making their own picture dictionaries (I'll post pictures when they're done).

How would you define delicious?
