Summary

Our language is filled with animal expressions, many of them so that we rarely stop to wonder where they came from or when they first appeared. This book tells the stories of over 1,000 beastly words and phrases in highly informative and fascinating essays you will turn to again and again. Once you meet the original copycats and jaywalkers, stool pigeons and toadies, mooncalves and monkey's uncles, you may never let sleeping dogs lie again! Book jacket.
