Entertaining yet informative, this book captures the quirkiness of languages and phrases from around the world and translates them into a fun format and great gift. In Russia, for instance, 'to put a pig under someone' means to play a dirty trick. In France, 'to have a well hung tongue' means to be eloquent. If someone in Germany tells you that you're living your life 'like a maggot in bacon', it means you're living the life of Riley. The broad selection of idioms provides a quirky look at different cultures and how they perceive the world in a light-hearted, fun manner.
