If the baboon could see his own behind, he would laugh too. From quarrelling hippopotamuses in Buganda to drinking tea with a fork in India, the proverbs in this book span the world. With striped squirrels, frowning frogs and bewildered baboons, Proverbs From Far and Wide is a wonderful collection of proverbs compiled and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, illustrator of the prize-winning children's book, The Gruffalo. These witty sayings will make you stop to think and laugh out loud.
