Lost In Translation ★★★★★
Ella Francis Sanders
Lost in Translation brings to life more than fifty words that don’t have direct English translations with charming illustrations of their delicate, moving, and humorous definitions. Often these words provide insight into the cultures they come from, such as the Brazilian Portuguese word for running your fingers through a lover’s hair, the Italian word for being moved to tears by a story, or the Swedish word for a third cup of coffee. In this clever and appealingly rendered exploration of the subtleties of communication, you’ll find new ways to express yourself while getting lost in the creativity of imperfect translation.
English Is Not Easy ★★★
English is not easy introduces the complexities of the English language in an illustrated guide that is enticing even o the grammar averse. Time after time, we always see a grammar guide that sends us to sleep but this guide offers vocabulary for situations the reader will actually find themselves in. In addition, if you are looking for new insults, these are also included in the guide too. With humorous illustrations to get you giggling, this guide certainly is a funny treat!
