Now then… not only have we made the drawings striking and therefore memorable but each character of the book brings the idioms to life.
My husband, Larry,
Larry has needed to “blow off steam” while running the house on his own while I work on my book.
He is the one with the black hair and bushy eyebrows.
My youngest daughter, Lily.
My second eldest, Liam.
Liam looks like he just stepped out of a boyband…without the money. He is always “flat broke” but that doesn’t seem to stop him from flirting with the girls.
Leah, The oldest of the bunch!
Leah seems to have “one finger in every pie” (a lot happening) and seemed to know just who to call on when times got tough… normally the pizza delivery guy!
Rebecca, Larry’s colleague.
Some people may think it’s odd that I included Rebecca, but she is so “full of herself”. She jumped at the chance to be featured.
Top, the DOG, better known as “TOP-DOG”. Top Dog is the “big Cheese” (most important person) of the family
Trouble, the CAT, May look as if “butter wouldn’t melt” but “don’t judge a book by its cover”. TRouble is … well trouble!
