Written by Gillian O'Reilly. Published by Annick Press, 2004.


Imagine yourself in a 1950s diner when you hear the waitress yell, “Could I have a bowl of red, a moo juice, and grab the gravel train while you’re at it.” Would you have any idea what she was talking about? Slangalicious will introduce you to all sorts of colourful expressions and their origins—over 500 slang words and phrases in all. For example, “O.K.” was first used by a newspaper in 1839 to indicate “all correct.”

With playful writing and funky illustrations, Slangalicious brings language to life. Explore:
  • slang from different categories, including food, sports, and popular culture
  • how slang spills over from one meaning to another
  • slang inspired by musical stylings of jazz and bebop
Slangalicious makes language hip.

Intended for ages 10+.
