Description

Cat got your tongue? Penny for your thoughts? Come again? Every day, idioms bring color to our speech. Since they don't really mean what they say, idioms can stump even the native English-speaker. Marvin Terban makes understanding idioms "as easy as pie" with the revised Scholastic Dictionary of Idioms. Explanations for, and origins of, more than 700 everyday American idioms, complete with kid-friendly sample sentences. The entries are amusing as well as educational. A substantive index makes finding idioms easy. Alphabetical listing and cross-referencing index makes finding idioms a "piece of cake."
