Praise
"In this pithy adaptation of her bestselling adult book of the same title, Truss wryly demonstrated the truth of her subtitle--sans comma."
"The witty sentences increase in complexity (and hilarity), augmented by sophisticated watercolor-and-ink illustrations with New Yorker flair...Elementary-school teachers will love this lighthearted but instructive effort, as will their students, who will never look at a comma in quite the same way."
From the Publisher
Annotation Lynne Truss, author of the bestselling adult punctuation guide EATS, SHOOTS & LEAVES, has created a hilarious picture book for grade-school children all about the beauty of commas. By using the same sentence, one with correct comma placement, and the other with incorrect placement, Truss demonstrates how drastically the meaning can change. An enormous hot dog can turn into a giant, sweaty dog with just one comma! The book is accompanied by full-color illustrations, and a clear explanation of each set of examples is also included.
First Line Punctuation marks are the traffic signals of language: they tell us to slow down, notice this, take a detour, or stop.
Editors Note In a title based on the best-selling adult edition, lively, subversive illustrations show how misplacing or leaving out a comma can change the meaning of a sentence completely.
Editors Note 3 Young and young-at-heart sticklers, unite! Lynne Truss and illustrator Bonnie Timmons provide hilarious proof that punctuation really does matter. Illuminating the comical confusion the lowly comma can cause, this new edition of Eats, Shoots & Leaves uses lively, subversive illustrations to show how misplacing or leaving out a comma can change the meaning of a sentence completely. This picture book is sure to elicit gales of laughterÂ?and better punctuationÂ?from all who read it.
