Tuesdays Treasures (Vol 1-8)

The Usborne Illustrated Thesaurus

This book I must confess is one of the best purchases I have ever made.  I will never go back to a standard thesaurus after using this one.
On the back cover: The Usborne Illustrated Thesaurus makes it fun and easy to find the perfect word. Clearly written alphabetical entries are interspersed with stunning illustrated panels to provide inspiration for creative writing. Special panels for overused words, such as "nice", encourage writers to be more adventurous.

The panels are what make this book special and set it apart from any other thesaurus out there.  Someone has uploaded a few of the panels on line to give you an idea of what I am talking about and just what sets this book apart and makes it a must have.
