From the New York Times bestselling author of Lost in Translation and Eating the Sun, a charming illustrated collection of more than fifty expressions from around the globe that explores the nuances of language
From the hilarious and romantic to the philosophical and literal, the idioms, proverbs, and adages in this illustrated collection address the nuances of language in the form of sayings from around the world. From the French idiom "to pedal in the sauerkraut" (meaning, "to spin your wheels"), to the Japanese idiom "even monkeys fall from trees" (meaning, "even experts can be wrong"), The Illustrated Book of Sayings reveals the remarkable diversity, humor, and poignancy of the world's languages and cultures.
ELLA FRANCES SANDERS is a writer out of necessity and an illustrator by accident. She currently lives and works in the city of Bath, UK, without a cat. Her first book, Lost in Translation: An Illustrated Compendium of Untranslatable Words from Around the World, was a New York Times bestseller and is now, perhaps ironically, being translated into many other languages. She still doesn't know exactly how it all happened, but things seem to be going OK.
