Over 850 sayings and proverbs with their history and derivation. If you've ever wondered where phrases like these came from, this is the book for you: "It's raining cats and dogs," "As poor as a church mouse," "Letting the cat out of the bag," "Spilling the beans," "Saved by the bell," "Kicked the bucket," "Pulling the wool over someone's eyes," "A pig in a poke," "Knock on wood," "Between a rock and a hard place," "Not enough room to swing a cat," "Beyond the pale," "Son of a gun," "Getting someone's goat," "The whole ball of wax," "Saving face," "Get it by hook or crook," "Reading the riot act," and many, more. From one reviewer: It has been said that you can't judge a book by its cover, but in this instance you can! The lovely cover is a prelude to the inside, which is a collection of oft heard proverbs and sayings repeated in most everyone's life. It is a pleasure to have them all together in this well thought out and charming book.
