Eats MORE, Shoots & Leaves: Why, ALL Punctuation Marks Matter! Paperback – Illustrated, Oct. 22 2019
Enhance your purchase
Clever side-by-side illustrations show how punctuation placement makes a huge difference in the meaning of a sentence.
Imagine this without the middle period and the comma: “The king walked and talked. A half hour after, his head was cut off.” Oh no—a beheaded king that can still walk and talk! You might want to eat a huge hot dog, but a huge, hot dog would run away pretty quickly if you tried to take a bite out of him.
Scenes from all three of Lynne Truss and Bonnie Timmons’s best-selling punctuation picture books (Eats, Shoots & Leaves, The Girl's Like Spaghetti, and Twenty-Odd Ducks) highlight the important jobs of commas, apostrophes, hyphens, quotation marks, and more in this humorous punctuation primer.
“Wordplay or ‘grammarplay’ at its finest.” —School Library Journal
