More Animal Sayings!

Here are some sayings that, for one reason or another, didn't make it into "There's a Frog in My Throat!" Some of them were complicated to illustrate; some were too gruesome; some were too unusual or regional; some were very similar to others already in the book. A few we even forgot!

You have bats in your belfry.
It's an albatross around my neck.
Get back on the horse after you fall off.
gentle as a lamb

There's more than one way to skin a cat.
the Judas goat
