Book Overview

A collection of 52 artistic renderings of sayings--aphorisms, idioms, and adages--from languages, countries, and cultures around the world that illuminate the whimsical nature of language.
Ella Frances Sanders's first book, Lost in Translation: An Illustrated Compendium of Untranslatable Words from Around the World, captured the imaginations of readers the world over with its charmingly illustrated words that have no direct English translation. Now, the New York Times-bestselling author is back with another illustrated collection that addresses the nuances of language in the form of sayings--what they are, what they mean, how they came about--from around the world. From the French idiom, pedeler dans la choucroute (to pedal in the sauerkraut), which means to spin your wheels, to the Japanese idiom even monkeys fall from trees (meaning, even experts can be wrong ), these sayings reveal the stunning diversity, humor, and poignancy of the world's languages and cultures.
