愛列清單的男孩,原來是同義字辭典之父!
 Roget's Thesaurus的故事

  對生性內向害羞的Peter Mark Roget而言,在他尚未動筆寫作前,書是他最親密的朋友。不過,人家動筆是寫書,他則是寫清單。

  Peter將對書的喜愛移轉到清單上,列過拉丁文清單、妙點子清單、氣象清單……不過最愛的還是字彙清單,他總是熱切地尋找並記錄下每一個最符合他當時想表達的詞語。漸漸地,這個清單內容越來越長,成為Peter隨身攜帶、非常重要的一本參考書。甚至到後來,這本清單還被出版成正式的書籍,造福許多經常為了使用正確字彙而尋尋覓覓的人。

  所有翻開這本書的讀者,都會像是受到字彙魔力感召的Peter一樣,在抒情文字與可愛插圖引導下,深深被故事情節吸引,進而重新點燃對字詞與學習的愛火。

For shy young Peter Mark Roget, books were the best companions -- and it wasn't long before Peter began writing his own book. But he didn't write stories; he wrote lists. Peter took his love for words and turned it to organizing ideas and finding exactly the right word to express just what he thought. His lists grew and grew, eventually turning into one of the most important reference books of all time.
Readers of all ages will marvel at Roget's life, depicted through lyrical text and brilliantly detailed illustrations. This elegant book celebrates the joy of learning and the power of words.
