       Meet the action idioms! 'Jump the gun,' 'hit the road,' 'kick the habit,' 'tackle the job!' Like all idioms, an action idiom is a group of words that work together to create their own special meaning. Marvin Terban once again takes an everyday part of the English language and makes a humorous and fascinating study of it. He gives clear and concise explanations of over one hundred action idioms and their origins. Illustrator Tom Hufffman lends a comical air with his literal interpretation of the idioms. After reading Punching the Clock, no one--young or old--will ever again be confused about action idioms. This book really 'hits the nail on the head!' Recommended for ages 8 to 12.
