My ESL students really enjoy this book. It's a fun way for them to learn new English phrases in context. They enjoy reading the dialogues and sentences below the cartoons and seeing different ways the phrases can be used.

    Easy and fun to use

    The format of this book makes learning the phrases a lot of fun. The cartoons are delightful, the definitions are clear and concise, and the examples are clearly from everyday life. I also like the addition of grammar points such as where to put pronouns as opposed to nouns in two-word (or more) verb phrases. ... Overall, I think this is a charming text which learners of English as a Second Language will find easy and fun to use. - S.A. Jones
