Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Penguin Rhyming Dictionary by Rosalind Fergusson is simple to use. About the first 300 pages is the actual rhyming dictionary, while the last 200 pages with lists of words in alphabetical order to help you find the word more easily. It does look difficult to read at first, but it really isn't, because of the way it is organized. There are many words that are uncommon, so in brackets there is a brief explanation beside them, such as a priest in another religion, etc. I have no doubts that this will help me rhyme better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Up with rhyming As a shoeless poet I love rhyming words and am constantly searching for out of this world words to cement my thoughts and lines into underestandable verse. This treasure has been unbelievably helpful as I so do love words, words, words with the questionable use of expletives in order to get the point across. I shall continue nosing about and make my words sing with the help of this rhyming dictionary.
