The Illustrated Book of Sayings by Ella Frances Sanders


This is a fun little book with clever illustrations.  If you’ve ever wondered where a popular saying got started you are likely to find your answer here.  It’s a neat mix of serious reference information and funny asides.   I read this as an ebook but I think I would prefer a printed copy.

My favorite saying:  “to give a green answer to a blue question.”  Perfect for an election year.
