When a Lobster Whistles showcases idioms from around the world that describe a time when something will never happen. In English, some say, "when pigs fly," while other languages express the idea with fish climbing trees, hairy frogs, or dancing cows. This book frames the expressions around a love that will never end.

Educators will appreciate the discussion of idioms and adynation (or hyperbole), the pronunciation guide, and the visual survey of countries and culture. Parents and kids alike will enjoy the humorous and exquisite illustrations. ESL students, and those who see their language represented, will relish a book that celebrates both the ideas that we all share, and the different ways that we express them.
