Black Cats and April Fools

£4.99

Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

Why do we tell actors to 'break a leg' instead of wishing them luck; why would you carry a potato in your pocket; and what happens if the baby is born at sunset? Harry Oliver's compilation of old wives' tales and superstitions has the answers – or at least the theories – but there are no promises that the performance will go well, your rheumatism will be cured or the child will be lazy. Slightly off-mint.
