Continuing the popular series of proverbs from around the world, each paired with an English equivalent, Don't Toss Granny in the Begonias sheds an amusing and often intriguing light on the rivalry between the French and the English: an odd couple who, from time immemorial, like to di... slike - or is it dislike liking? - each other.
Fortunately, old enemies make the best friends, and Don't Toss Granny highlights the many similarities between the cultures. Witness 'Porter l'eau a la riviere' and 'To carry coals to Newcastle', or 'Quand le chat n'est pas la, les souris dansent' - dancing mice as opposed to their English rat counterparts, who play in the cat's absence.
