Street, Pat and Brace, Eric and Illustrated by Brace, Eric You’re Pulling my Leg: 400 Human-Body Sayings from Head to Toe 47 pgs Holiday House, 2016. $18.95 PICTURE BOOK/NON-FICTION
This book is stuffed to the gills with Idioms, Similes,
Metaphors, and Proverbs..each and every one of them has body words. Its
organized from the head down, each double page spread featuring a different fun
scene, like a school, a parade, a forest, a circus and more. The many mini characters
are not only acting out their own saying, but are interacting, doing hilarious
things, and making funny comments.
Wow, this books reminds me of Where’s Waldo in its intricacy!
Hats off to the illustrator, serious detail and creativity! I am astounded by
how many sayings they have come up with, its mind blowing! (I keep snickering
to myself, I know). This is a fun asset to any school library and stands a way
better chance of being chosen and read by a student, rather than used just for a lesson by a teacher.
The cover is appealing, the illustrations are funny, and it’s just plain
interesting to look at.
