I have a question.
Some years ago I held a book in my hands.
I think, it’s by Stephen Fry…) Or, maybe, he’s one of its authors.
I have never read that book.
That one was named like “Flibbertigibbet”)). Title with two rhymed words
I can’t recall exactly.
Would you be so kind to remind me the title of this book?

Color Panda, I'm not entirely sure but the book you're looking for might be "Tish and Pish: How to Be of a Speakingness Like Stephen Fry - A Delicious Collection of Sumptuous Gorgeosities" by Stewart Ferris.

Ad_astra, have you ever read this book? Is it useful and interesting. Or it's just an attempt to copy incredible Fry's language?

Color Panda,I have just flicked through the book once so I can't say much about it. As far as I remember it's a kind of tongue-in-cheek attempt at creating something like an English - Fry dictionary or phrasebook.
Here's a sample chapter if you'd like to have a look yourself:http://www.summersdale.com/images/Tish_and_Pish-sample-chapter.pdf
