My Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
This book is the perfect little read when you want something new, fresh and interesting. Saying from all over the world packed into a small book that really was a joy to read. The sayings remind me of other ones that have been adapted here, but seeing them as a native speaker sees them, was lovely. where we might say a wolf in sheep’s clothing the Japanese say you are wearing a cat on your head. Same premise, different animal.
There are sayings from all over the globe with a bit of an explaination. Also there is really beautiful artwork behind each saying that makes it just a joy to read.
The sayings are cute and show in the native language and then are translated into English. It is a nice gift for anyone that loves different sayings and different cultures.
When I saw this up on list of available books, I was thrilled. I love learning new and old saying and knowing their meaning. I was provided this book by Blogging for Books and have posted my honest opinion of my own free will.
