Amazon's selling this quality full-color hardcover with a CD of MP3 recordings attached inside the back cover (I'm not sure about the recording quality because I haven't used the CD) for under $15. A penny per word seems a bargain.
It covers an excellent variety of words (nouns and verbs), categorized well (e.g., "In the hospital" words are on separate pages from "Chinese medicine" words, and restaurant words are divided among "fast-food restaurant," "Western restaurant," "Chinese cuisine" and "snacks at night markets"), each category having its own interesting drawings.
For learning purposes, some might prefer each word be right next to its associated picture, but I like this book's approach of separating pictures from the words (linking them only by number) because it lets you quiz yourself by looking at the pictures. The range of words is quite good (e.g., it distinguishes baking, grilling, barbecuing, deep-frying, stir-frying, frying, simmering, boiling, blanching, stewing, and steaming food). The font size is bigger than in some other illustrated dictionaries. And the translations seem good too. Even my Chinese wife has learned a few words from this book. We've long called cupcakes "''" (cake), but the book offers "''," which is probably a better translation. And I appreciate it including some modern words, like "'''''" (LCD monitor).
One major weakness is that this dictionary contains no sample sentences. So, it's a great resource for learning Chinese words, but it won't, by itself, teach you basic Mandarin or put those words into context for you.
