New Children's Dictionary

What a cool new dictionary!
From BBCNews:

The Oxford Primary Dictionary features hundreds of citations from children's authors including JK Rowling, Philip Pullman and Roald Dahl...

...A citation for the word innumerable cites Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets with the sentence "Innumerable candles were hovering in mid-air, over four long crowded table".

As well using citations from modern books, classic novels have also been drawn on, including CS Lewis and Enid Blyton.

Umm...who ever put the story into the news database needs to tidy up the grammar. I know a new grad journalist who will take the job!
