Description

Are you as clever as a fox? Or perhaps you're as sharp as any spike? If so, this book will be a piece of cake! Clever rhymes from Brian P. Cleary and humorous illustrations from Brian Gable present similes and metaphors. When it comes to grammar, this team is not as slow as thick molasses. Oh no, they're as bright as polished pennies! Each simile and metaphor is printed in color for easy identification in this gem of a book. Read it aloud and share in the delight of the sense--and nonsense--of words.
