HASH(0x9f707918) out of 5 stars Word-whimsy par excellence 14 July 2010
By T. G. Gutheil - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Playing with words is an eminently harmless hobby and this book takes it to the next level: playing with standard phrases and cliches. You can feel the author's enjoyment. A very pleasant journey.

HASH(0x9f7205f4) out of 5 stars Correcting the publication date 10 Jun. 2013
By Vince Abadie - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book was actually first published in 1965, not in 1979, as the description indicates. I had it as a child (I turned 6 in 1965) and read and re-read it many times over my childhood years. A great little spoof on Victorian writing.
