Overview

Here is a refreshing tongue-in-cheek look at American idioms, presented in living caricature. American English Idioms, a whimsical collection of colloquialisms, is sure to delight you - and provide real insight into American idioms, customs, and humor.

Harry Collis has arranged common everyday idioms into nine lighthearted sections - including:

  • The Body Has Many Uses
  • People Do the Strangest Things
  • When Things Go Wrong
  • When Things Go Well
  • and more

And he has turned them over to the expert hands of Mario Risso, whose wonderfully humorous cartoons illustrate what Americans say and what they really mean.

Each idiom has a standard English "translation" and is placed in a real-life context, either in a natural dialogue or narrative. These facilitate understanding and make the idioms come alive!
