Synopsis

Butterflies in My Stomach and Other School Hazards by Serge Bloch

This hilarious look at common expressions will be loved by both kids and adults. Bloch presents puzzling expressions in witty and wonderful images using line drawings and photographs. It is suitable for children aged four years old and up. Kids will find this wickedly clever picture book a barrel of laughs! You can bet your bottom dollar this funny story is the cream of the crop and the best thing since sliced bread! Award-winning artist Serge Bloch will have kids laughing their heads off at this child's-eye look at common idiomatic expressions like ants in your pants, and cat got your tongue? These are sayings that adults know well, but that children might find puzzling at first; Bloch presents them in witty and wonderful images that mix whimsical line drawings with photographs of inanimate objects: colourful butterflies flutter in our hero's stomach, a cloud rains on him when he's under the weather, and the big cheese Principal has a body cut out of a block of Swiss. At the same time, Bloch provides a unique and sympathetic perspective on a boy's first day of school. This is one book kids will hold close to their hearts.
