Review

The point is to make children laugh while swallowing their grammatical medicine - and do they ever. (Wall Street Journal)

Lynne Truss is taking primary schools to task in her battle for grammatical correctness (Times Educational Supplement)

A hilarious illustrated version for children highlighting the confusion that can occur when a comma is put in the wrong place...Great for children and adults alike. (The Bookseller)

an amusing, colourful and educational book that helps children to get to grips with that all-important "little dot with the tail" (Observer) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Lynne Truss is a writer and journalist who started out as a literary editor with a blue pencil and then got sidetracked. The author of three novels and numerous radio comedy dramas, she spent six years as the television critic of The Times of London, followed by four (rather peculiar) years as a sports columnist for the same newspaper. She won Columnist of the Year for her work for Women's Journal. Lynne Truss also hosted Cutting a Dash, a popular BBC Radio 4 series about punctuation. She now reviews books for the Sunday Times of London and is a familiar voice on BBC Radio 4. She lives in Brighton, England.
BONNIE TIMMONS is best known for inspiring and creating images for the television show Caroline in the City and illustrating numerous national ad campaigns.
