Continuing the popular series of proverbs from around the world, each paired with an English equivalent, Don’t Toss Granny in the Begonias sheds amusing and often intriguing light on the perhaps justly notorious rivalry between the French and the English. But more than this, Don’t Toss Granny highlights as many similarities between the cultures. Witness ‘Porter l’eau á la riviére’ and ‘To carry coals to Newcastle’, or ‘Quand le chat n’est pas lá, les souris dansent’ – dancing mice as opposed to their English counterparts, who play in the cat’s absence.
