    One thought on “Peculiar Proverbs: Weird Words of Wisdom from Around the World

    1. Bob Hartley

      Plenty of these proverbs aren't really strange, but some of them are funny. All the research that must have gone into this, and they go and illustrate and typeset it in such a kidz kartoon style. Shame.

    2. Alexandra Zlatior

      The reason why I find this book funny is that these 'words of wisdom' are in a really strong connection with the country they came from. I find it interesting, pleasing and relaxing.
