About this title:

Synopsis: Description: Why does it "rain cats and dogs?" Why do we "fly off the handle" or "take it with a grain of salt?" Why are we judged by a "kangaroo court" for "painting the town red" or "wearing our heart on our sleeve?" Authors Cos Ferrara and Ed Wilczynski look behind 53 of these curious expressions and provide a brief, playful explanation of their origins. Amusing illustrations by Sarah Macy enliven each week. There is ample room to note special events and appointments each week, as well as the current and next months at a glance. Notes: This informative desk diary provides educational information about American slang phrases in an amusing way. Each page features a multiple-choice option of the phrase's origins, provided by the correct answer and an explanation. A humorous illustration on each page adds to the fun. There is nothing like this on the calendar market today. This calendar should do well with the literary market; it makes a fine companion to the Book of Fictional Days and On Writers and Writing.
