Bite your tongue --
A bull in a china shop --
Can't see the forest for the trees --
A chicken with its head cut off --
Clear as a bell --
Cute as a bug's ear --
Double whammy --
Ducks in a row --
Fresh as a daisy --
The handwriting is on the wall --
Jack of all trades --
Kick up your heels --
Knee, jerk reaction --
Level playing field --
Mind your own beeswax --
Out like a light --
A penny for your thoughts --
Pull the plug --
Raining cats and dogs --
Saved by the bell --
Smell a rat --
The third time's the charm --
The whole nine yards.
Responsibility: written by Cynthia Klingel ; illustrated by Mernie Gallagher-Cole.
