Book Review: The Illustrated Book of Sayings
Her magpie stands high.
Even monkeys fall from trees.
Who saw the peacock dance in the jungle?
If these expressions intrigue you and you want to know what they mean, what language they are part of and how they came about, you might want to pick up The Illustrated Book of Sayings by Ella Frances Sanders. These fun, cultural and sometimes philosophical proverbs, sayings and expressions come with colorful illustrations that add charm to this book. If you love curious and timeless linguistic expressions, you'll love this book!
Btw, her magpie stands high means she has long legs!
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
