Description

From a fish opening a ?can of worms? to a tap-dancing octopus putting his ?best foot forward, ? these familiar idioms are re-imagined by award-winner Wallace Edwards in hilarious and unexpected ways. To help readers ?stay on the ball, ? the idioms are used in a sentence that accompanies each illustration, and the meaning of each idiom is explained at the end of the book. Every page is so richly illustrated that it is sometimes a challenge to find the hidden monkeys --- some are more easily spotted than others A playful introduction to idioms, a clever eye-spy book and a gallery of stunning animal portraits, this collection is more fun than a barrel of monkeys.
