Eats, Shoots and Leaves

What good IS a comma? In this children's version of British punctuation fiend Lynne Truss's bestseller, pictures and simple sentences are imaginatively combined to answer this question in a clear, funny way. Rather than replace the original book (a punctuation guide for adults), this picture book supplements it nicely.

Though this is a very short and simple book, targeted toward young audiences (3rd grade, it is said), I think it is a must-read for readers and writers of every stripe and age.
