The only other reference comparable to this is DK's 2002 publication, the Five-Language Visual Dictionary. Although the DK offering features full-color photographs, it is considerably less comprehensive, presenting 1,600 illustrations defining 10,000 terms in about 400 pages. In comparison, Firefly runs 1,092 pages. One drawback to the current work is its small dimensions. Pages measure about seven by eight inches, necessitating the use of a relatively small font for the definitions. This is a minor concern, however. Where else are researchers going to find a complete listing of all the elements of the periodical table in five different languages compiled in one place? Irresistible for browsers, serviceable as either a basic visual dictionary or thesaurus, and of immense value to second-language learners, this is recommended for high-school, public, and academic collections.

[Starred Review:] Wow! This book is simply amazing -- visually stunning, rich with information, and overflowing with detail... Not only is this book useful in learning the details and nuances of a foreign language but it is quite a handy way to learn these terms in one's own language... this brilliant work is essential for students of any of these languages, lovers of language, and any library supporting a language program or multilingual patrons.

Selected by Library Journal as one of the Best Reference Sources for 2004: "Such is the breadth of coverage that there are precise terms for 15 examples of shoes -- not to mention cell phones and even MP3 players." (Brian E. Coutts Library Journal 2005-04-15)
A valuable tool to expand young minds. (Nashville Parent)
