'Some things are just sitting there, minding their own business, waiting to be discovered. Like America. And other things are probably better off left alone'
Nine-year-old Bruno has a lot of things on his mind. Who is the 'Fury'? Why did he make them leave their nice home in Berlin to go to 'Out-With' ? And who are all the sad people in striped pyjamas on the other side of the fence? The grown-ups won't explain so Bruno decides there is only one thing for it - he will have to explore this place alone. What he discovers is a new friend. A boy with the very same birthday. A boy in striped pyjamas. But why can't they ever play together?

'I'm reading the OED so you don't have to. If you are interested in vocabulary that is both spectacularly useful and beautifully useless, read on...'
Who among us does not know a wine-knight (a person who drinks valiantly), or someone who obaginates (to annoy by repeating over and over and over)? Who has not felt mumpish (sullenly angry) or appreciated the apricity (the warmth of sun in winter)? And who can honestly say they have not constulted (acted stupidly together) with a friend?
The words themselves are delightful; their explanations are lexical gold. If you've ever suffered from onomatomania (vexation at having difficulty in finding the right word), Reading the OED will happify you.
