This is a very comprehensive and easy to read guide on basic grammar, spelling and punctuation. The text is laid out in a manner that is clear with pictures to demonstrate the wording. As someone who cannot remember being taught most grammar and punctuation, this has been the easiest to read and the most concise book that I have found relating to grammar, spelling and punctuation. I thoroughly reccommend this book to anyone who needs to re learn, to understand and fill in the gaps in their knowledge in this area.

I purchased this book for my eleven year old granddaughter, who has been having some difficulty with her punctuation (I don't live near enough to help much in person). It is a great little book: well written, humorous and interesting to read - I would recommend it to anyone as it makes the subject accessible to youngsters who don't have an unquenchable love for all things connected with English Grammar but want to do well in their school work!

What more could you ask? It's clear, accurate, easy to understand, logically laid out, and the illustrations really help the explanations. It's the one reference I really wish I'd had when I was at school.

I have recommended it to young children, teenagers, and a range of adults and all agree that it is just what they were looking for.

Spelling, grammar and punctuation are never going to be the most gripping subject matter, but if any book can make them accessible then this is it. And IT'S CHEAP!

Excellent book, well put together and easy to use. Age range is probably all primary school years but with help from parents for 5-7 year olds.

This book will remind (or correct) parents knowledge of English grammer, sorry, grammar, spelling and punctuation. I never knew spelling was so difficult!

Small points which I disagree with are, for example, the use of double speech marks with only a passing reference to the fact that some people use single speech marks instead. I thought that the general usage was now single as opposed to double. Still, if you don't agree with what's been said (and that will, I think, be very rarely) then you can correct it yourself before passing it to your child to use as a reference (also check with the school as to their preferred way).

All in all, good value and one of the best on the market dealing with this age range.

I bought this for my 9 year old niece, as she loves to read and write. I had a quick look through it and couldn't believe how much was crammed into it and how easily everything was explained. I learned a few things too!....I am seriously thinking of buying a book for myself.

Really, REALLY LOVE THIS BOOK. Ordered for my Grandson. So well laid out, loads n loads of information. Also, quality of book, including cover strength, colour, is great. Easy to read, lots of great examples. Surprised at the amount of information packed into book for its size. Thinking of ordering copy for myself to brush up on grammar, spelling and punctuation skills which I loved learning at school - now well into 60's. so will be an easy way to refresh my own knowledge. Arrived very quickly and packaged well. Extremely happy with this purchase. Thank you.

I used this book to help me pass my literacy skills test for teaching. It really helped me to remember the things that I had forgotten from being at school. Very user friendly, and I can also use this book whilst I am teaching at school, as it is child friendly too.

Only problem is that there isn't any room to write anything on the pages, so you will need paper and a pen. Overall excellent book to keep checking over.
