A delightful exploration of animal words, phrases, and their origins - Aaron's serpent to zyzzyva. Robert Hendrickson looked high and low - fromm booby hatches to cat houses - to ferret out the origins of the aimal words and phrases that enliven our language. Though he didn't go to the horse's mouth, he did go the whole hog in his research, following up every red herring, taking each bull by the horns, and laboring until the sacred cows came home to create a book that's as much fun as a barrela of monkeys!

(Key Words: English Language, Robert Hendrickson, Animal Lore, Zoology Nomenclature, Etymology, Words).
