Certain to put a smile on your face, this delightful children’s book of idioms from around the world, will have the whole family wondering which to believe. You may have heard the English expression “when pigs fly”, but have you heard “when the lobster whistles on top of the mountain”?! These baffling expressions from around the globe have become part of common culture, where the words have a meaning that is different to their literal understanding. 

Each double page features a different country and idiom, with a map at the end showing where abouts in the world these phrases originate, and also in the language of origin. This lighthearted, entertaining look at language from around the globe is written by Susan Schubert, a former kindergarten teacher, and  beautifully illustrated with colourful images by Raquel Bonita, created using hand-printed textures and colours. Can you make up your own idiom?

Award winning children’s book publisher and social enterprise, Lantana Publishing, have a mission to publish inclusive books that are changing the game of publishing, commissioning books that celebrate diversity, equality, and environmental sustainability. In the UK, a third of school children identify as being Black, Asain, or Minority Ethnic (BAME), but yet less than 5% of books are representative of BAME characters. Further to this, less than 2% are authors or book creators represented by British people of colour, even less than this are representative of the LGBTQ+ communities or disabled. Lantana believes that every child deserves to see themselves in the books they read.
