      Reviews and Comments

      From the publisher:
    This collection of similes from A to Z is as zany as a chigger chased around a stump. It includes rib-tick
    ling folk expressions from Americans of all walks of life and all parts of the country in a bodacious tribute to both our country's diversity and pioneer heritage. There is a funny simile and uproarious illustration for each letter of the alphabet. Readers who are as curious as cats will enjoy the fascinating author's note that explores the origins of the expressions. A bibliography is included.
