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!
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.
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.
