The English language can be very confusing. But it’s not rocket surgery. Damp Squids and Card Sharks is a fascinating suppository of false facts and common errors, a minefield of information.

This cute, funny book features gorgeous illustrations alongside the 50 amusing malapropisms, mixed metaphors and mondegreens. In one foul swoop you'll learn why so many people get muddled by the same phrases!
