Wallace Edwards’ extraordinary collection of animal portraits will have you buzzing like a bee. An amusing introduction to idioms and an irresistible eye-spy book, The Cat’s Pajamas is truly the cat’s meow.
Within these stunningly illustrated pages are twenty-six tableaus, each depicting a different idiom, guaranteed to tickle your funny bone. 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 are a piece of cake to find, others may require you to use your noodle.
A follow-up to the award winning Monkey Business, this book is even more fun than a barrel of monkeys!
