Amoroso leads the reader through about thirty of the common
idioms and figures of speech commonly in use: I'm all thumbs, the big cheese,

example of how the idiom is used and explains the meaning while Gallagher-Cole
ups the entertainment factor with literal illustrations of the phrases.
This would be a handy
