At first glance, you might think Ross Horsley’s ‘My First Dictionary’ is just a harmless, colorful and educational aide for young children. You would, however, be very wrong.

With a devilishly sly and decidedly dark sense of humor, ‘My First Dictionary’ is a humorous and satirical book meant for adults that features pictures borrowed (and mischievously re-captioned) from the 1977 book 'The Giant Picture Dictionary for Boys and Girls.' With its definition of a pocketbook as "a small bag used for carrying money and Xanax" being just one prime example of its mischievous wit, Ross Horsley’s ‘My First Dictionary’ is a gift best given to your adult friends rather than their children.
