Stick your nose in this book full of knee-slappers, and no expression will go over your head!

Ever wonder what it means to dig your heels in, or what kind of restaurant offers a knuckle sandwich? The English language is full of quirky, colorful sayings and idioms-- but some of them can be confusing, too.

That's why Pat Street and Eric Brace put their heads together to think about human body sayings. You're Pulling My Leg! introduces four hundred common sayings about body parts, pairing simple explanations with hilariously literal illustrations.

Perfect for introducing figurative language to young readers, this is also an excellent resource for English language learners of all ages. The eye-catching, cartoonish illustrations, rib-tickling jokes, and lighthearted approach will have you smiling from ear to ear-- and laughing your head off.

A note from the author explains the different types of sayings and figurative language used, and an index of body parts is included.
