Who Ordered the Jumbo Shrimp? and Other Oxymorons | Little Lit Book Series

@bookbloom shares a hilarious book by Jon Agee for this month’s theme of words and word play.

Oxymoron: A common expression made up of two contradictory words or elements. For example: Pretty ugly. Baby Grand. Industrial Park. Even Odds. And so forth. This collection of 50+ phrases will make you pause a moment, if only to consider the strange and wonderful world of language.

Who Ordered the Jumbo Shrimp? and Other Oxymorons was written and illustrated by Jon Agee and published by HarperCollins.
