Description
Whether we are pretty ugly or terribly cute, weve all faced a minor catastrophe, made an original copy, or taken a calculated risk. And there are those of us who have turned up missing (sometimes accidentally on purpose).Good grief! These are oxymorons, common expressions made up of two completely contradictory words or elements.Jon Agee follows up his critically acclaimed palindrome books with a collection of over fifty of these strangely familiar phrases, each accompanied by a seriously hilarious illustration. Children and adults alike will be awfully amused by this small masterpiecedestined to be an instant classic
