I’ve taught figurative language and idioms for years (to middle schoolers and most recently first-year ESL college students) with the author's permission and through the idiomtastic-adventures of His hilarious detective friends. Now, The Gumshoe Zoo Detectives are busy solving alliterative-adventure mysteries, in "Betty's Burgled Bakery!" Be sure to check out "Fowl Play," too!
