The Curious Dictionary (Word Hunters #1)
From award-winning author Nick Earls and illustrator Terry Whidborne comes a mysterious, action-packed series for the word nerd in us all.Lexi and Al Hunter are twins with almost nothing in common - except their parents and their birthday! At school Lexi hangs with her friends, while Al hides in the library reading about history, battles and faraway places. When the twins stumble upon an old dictionary their world as they know it changes. They are blasted into history to hunt down the words that threaten to vanish from our past and our present. Their lives and the future of the world are at stake. Can they find a way back home? Or will they be trapped in the past? For once, they'll need to depend on each other if they want to survive.
Nick Earls is the author of thirteen books, including 48 Shades of Brown and After January. Terry Whidborne has worked in the advertising industry for many years, and is now recognised as one of Brisbane's most senior award-winning Art Directors.
