Norton Juster

SUMMARY

It would be a grievous insult to Juster's and Small's hard work if this book were passed over by those who misunderstand the grim black jacket or those who ignore the black-and-white illustrations before they notice each picture's hilarious content. Readers will love the rollicking batch of similes and wordplay: "As patient as lizards/As heavy as lead/As slow as the ketchup/As safe as your bed." For "As different as noses/As fickle as luck," such notable schnozzes as those of W. C. Fields and Pinocchio gather around a "Wheel of Fortune." Side-splitting fun. Small's contribution is immense.Norton Juster is the author of 'A Surfeit of Similes' with ISBN 9780688081393 and ISBN 0688081398.
