Description
Have you ever wondered how someone can be in a pickle when pickles are so small, or why mothers say you re on thin ice even when you re indoors? Are you perplexed that your father brings home the bacon but is a strict vegetarian? Will Moses has the answers, and sheds light not only on these idioms but dozens more with "Raining Cats and Dogs."

Using his trademark folk-art style, Moses infuses a sense of mischief and humor into these often puzzling phrases, educating readers while entertaining them.



About the Author
It is no wonder Will Moses has found great success as a folk artist-he grew up around some of the best. At the age of only four years, Will began painting with his grandfather, Forrest K. Moses, a folk artist who learned to paint from his mother, Anna Mary Robertson, better known as Grandma Moses. Will, however, has received worldwide recognition for his own individual style, and his colorful and exuberant picture books have become favorites with today's children and their parents.
