You’ve probably heard the expression “when pigs fly,” but did you know that in Spain they say “when frogs grow hair” and in Nigeria “when chickens have teeth”? This book is a rib-tickling collection of idioms from around the world. But the question is: will you believe them…?
What do critics say about the book?
“[…] ‘Such a fun book! It will spark the imagination of readers and encourage them to play with language themselves!’
Caroline Fielding, CILIP YLG London chair
‘With a world map, exploration of complex and playful language and inclusive illustrations, there is lots to enjoy in this book. There is certainly a lot that will have little ones giggling!’
Father Reading Every Day
