Wallace Edwards's extraordinary new collection of animal portraits will have you buzzing like a bee. An amusing introduction to idioms and an irresistible eye-spy book, The Cat's Pyjamas is truly the cat's meow. Within these stunningly illustrated pages are twenty-six tableaus, each depicting a different idiom, guaranteed to tickle your funny bone. 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 are a piece of cake to find, others may require you to use your noodle.

English language idioms are difficult to explain to kids and non-English speakers, but this engaging book makes it fun. I used some of the pictures for a scavenger hunt/idioms activity, and it worked great.

Truly - a marvel for lovers of fine illustration and word play. Your child will, learn to appreciate the humor in this picture book if it is shared together.
