We all remember and love the book, Lost in Translation — An Illustrated Compendium of Untranslatable Words from Around the World. Such a cute and interesting book! So I was so excited to hear that Ella had been working on her second book, Speaking in Tongues. From the hilarious and romantic to the philosophical and literal, the sayings, idioms and adages in Speaking in Tongues, she reveals the remarkable diversity and poignancy of the world’s languages and cultures.
Check out some of the weird but wonderful sayings from around the world that feature in the book, along with the illustrations to match!
What better way to celebrate Speaking in Tongues than on International Translation Day!
