The Lovereading4Kids comment
Grammar goddess Lynne Truss has a thing about punctuation, quite rightly in my view. This is her effort, and by the way itâ€™s utterly brilliant, to make punctuation fun for young children so that from an early age they understand the importance of it and how the â€˜little dot with the tailâ€™ put in the wrong place changes the emphasis of the sentence completely. It is sure to garner praise and horror in equal measure from educationalists but you can be sure that children will find it very funny and colourful and by the end of it will have a better understanding of punctuation.
Eats, Shoots & Leaves: Why Commas make a difference by Lynne TrussAims to illuminate the hilarious confusion that one mere dot with a tail can cause, this work features pictures by one of America's leading illustrators.
