Product Description

About the Author

Writer and Editor Harry Oliver holds a fascination for the quirky stories that lie behind aspects of our everyday lives. His previous book March Hares and Monkeys' Uncles as a bestselling look at the origins of phrases, and for this new volume he has turned his attentions elsewhere to come up with an equally fascinating look at old wives' tales and superstitions. Author of two other books, he lives and works in London.

I loved this book, and enjoyed it as I enjoyed all of Mr Oliver's offerings. I received his series as a gift and have pored over the entries with interest - Harry's books are the sort you dip in and out of and never fail to learn something new from. fantastic!

Bought this for my daughter but I love reading it too. Its very interesting finding out where superstitions come from and the history behind them.

its ok but a bit obscure and not what I was expecting. I wanted the meaning of all the old phrases and am disappointed.
