From the acclaimed Wallace Edwards comes his second collection of idioms, a companion to the award-winning Monkey Business.

The Cat's Pajamas depicts 26 idioms, bringing new meaning to familiar sayings and tickling your funny bone with a surreal illustration on each page. To ensure you get the hang of it, each expression is used in a sentence and explained at the back of the book. And if you look closely you'll discover a cat hidden in every painting; some cats are a piece of cake to find, others may require you to use your noodle.

A gorgeously illustrated eye-spy book and a unique introduction to idioms, this book is truly the cat's meow.

English language idioms are difficult to explain to kids and non-English speakers, but this engaging book makes it fun. I used some of the pictures for a scavenger hunt/idioms activity, and it worked great.
