Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6 --Terban takes those everyday phrases known as idioms and gives clear and witty explanations of the meanings and origins of over 100 of them. Huffman's literal interpretation of each idiom in black-and-white ink drawings with bits of green add a comic air. Children will delight in this humorous study, as it makes the English language fun. An index of the idioms should make it a teacher pleaser as well. --Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA
