Eats More, Shoots & Leaves : Why, All Punctuation Marks Matter!
by Lynne Truss and Bonnie Timmons




Overview -
Laugh your way to punctuation perfection with this pocket-sized paperback compendium of the hilariously illustrated #1 New York Times bestselling series.

Clever side-by-side illustrations show how punctuation placement makes a huge difference in the meaning of a sentence.

Imagine this without the middle period and the comma: "The king walked and talked. A half hour after, his head was cut off." Oh no--a beheaded king that can still walk and talk You might want to eat a huge hot dog, but a huge, hot dog would run away pretty quickly if you tried to take a bite out of him.

Scenes from all three of Lynne Truss and Bonnie Timmons's best-selling punctuation picture books (Eats, Shoots & Leaves, The Girl's Like Spaghetti, and Twenty-Odd Ducks) highlight the important jobs of commas, apostrophes, hyphens, quotation marks, and more in this humorous punctuation primer.
