Wallace Edwards The Cat's Pajamas

From the acclaimed Wallace Edwards comes his second collection of idioms, a companion to the award-winning Monkey Business.

The Cat's Pajamas depicts 26 idioms, bringing new meaning to familiar sayings and tickling your funny bone with a surreal illustration on each page. 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 cats are a piece of cake to find, others may require you to use your noodle.

A gorgeously illustrated eye-spy book and a unique introduction to idioms, this book is truly the cat's meow.

All works watercolor, colored pencil, and gouache.
