Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
A comanion to the best-seller Eats, Shoots & Leaves , this is punctuation play at its finest!
Just as the use of commas was hilariously demystified in Eats, Shoots & Leaves: Why, Commas Really Do Make a Difference! , now Lynne Truss and Bonnie Timmons put their talents together to do the same for apostrophes. Everyone needs to know where to put an apostrophe to make a word plural or possessive (Are those sticky things your brother's or your brothers?) and leaving one out of a contraction can give someone the completely wrong impression (Were here to help you).
Full of silly scenes that show how apostrophes make a difference, too, this is another picture book that will elicit bales of laughter and better punctuation from all who read it.
See how using (or not using) an apostrophe can change the meaning of a sentence. Suggested level: junior, primary.
