This little passport-sized, bright pink book weighs about two ounces and speaks all languages. How? Itís a universal phrase book made up entirely of pictures, most of them in black and white. The book categorizes common everyday objects and symbols into twelve easy-to-find groups. Within each group are clustered simple and readily identifiable line drawings of the objects in that category. There is even room to jot down some phrases of your own should you decide to communicate in words in addition to pictures.

Perhaps you need to convey to your German maitre dí or your Nepalese tour guide that you need a toothbrush or that you are allergic to seafood? This book will help you do both effectively and easily - you simply point to the right symbols for each. The book is small enough to fit in a small purse or even pants pocket. For anyone who dreads being stuck at a doctorís office in a foreign country or being left staring at an incomprehensible menu filled with bewildering options, this picture dictionary should considerably ease the pain.
