Sometimes don't you just feel like an ignoramus (look that word up) when you don't quite understand a word or a phrase that someone else says, especially a grownup? When you were little and heard an adult say something like "he was fired" you probably thought they threw some guy in a furnace and he was all burned up. Usually kids just don't ask if they hear things they don't quite understand rather than have someone think they are a dork or worse yet an ignoramus (have you looked up that word yet?). In this book you'll find all kinds of sayings and phrases that, once you learn, you'll be ready for Jeopardy!

Some phrases like "pull a fast one" lots of kids are familiar with because most have tried to pull a fast one and have been told that they did. That means "to be tricky or clever; to do something that no one expected." Take another one like "in one ear and out the other." That means "to ignore or forget something that you've been told." Yep, I'm sure you must have heard that one! In this book you might find a few you haven't a clue about. For example you'll read about "fish or cut bait," "long in the tooth" (huh?), "white elephant" and the "dog days of summer." There are thirty-one idioms (look it up) that you'll have fun with. Each one gives an example in context and then tells you the meaning. Some you'll know and others . . . duh, you won't!

This was a fun book to read and I was even caught by one phrase I had no idea as to what it meant. Children are often clueless when it comes to some common idioms that adults know and take it for granted that kids know them as well. This fun book is not only informative, but is also an English language primer in disguise. This is one is a series of similar books you'll love. You won't have to "pay through the nose for this one" and you won't have to get a "rain check" from Amazon because it's in stock!
