Description

Shrek? Earwax-flavoured jellybeans? Poems about meatballs? Who on earth would use all these to explain the rules of grammar? Must be Patricia T. O'Conner. Just like she did in Woe is I, her national bestseller for adults, this young readers version uses simple language and witty, entertaining examples to show how fun and easy it can be to use good English. Hey, nobody ever said grammar had to be boring.

Review quote

"In this entertaining treasure, O'Conner's blithe banter will attract young readers, and her irreverent delivery will retain them. . . . This fun resource will prove invaluable." --VOYA (starred review) "O'Conner's examples, funny little verses, and rules [plus] Stiglich's expressive cartoons are guaranteed to snag the attention of the most ungrammatical little culprit." --The Chicago Sun-Times "Handbooks that are as instructive as they are entertaining are few and far between, making this a first purchase for most libraries." --School Library Journal
