BOOK EXCERPT:

We all know the basics of punctuation. Or do we? A look at most neighborhood signage tells a different story. Through sloppy usage and low standards on the internet, in email, and now text messages, we have made proper punctuation an endangered species. In Eats, Shoots & Leaves, former editor Lynne Truss dares to say, in her delightfully urbane, witty, and very English way, that it is time to look at our commas and semicolons and see them as the wonderful and necessary things they are. This is a book for people who love punctuation and get upset when it is mishandled. From the invention of the question mark in the time of Charlemagne to George Orwell shunning the semicolon, this lively history makes a powerful case for the preservation of a system of printing conventions that is much too subtle to be mucked about with.

BOOK EXCERPT:

A pocket-sized paperback compendium of the hilariously illustrated #1 New York Times bestselling series of books about punctuation. Lynne Truss and Bonnie Timmons's hilariously re-imagined children's adaptation of Eats, Shoots & Leaves was a wild success when it came out in 2006, spending five weeks at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. The Girl's Like Spaghetti and Twenty-Odd Ducks followed with equal success, and now all three are combined into a single, helpful volume! As in the original books, clever side-by-side illustrations demonstrate how carefully (or not) placed punctuation marks can completely alter a sentence's meaning. This compendium edition compiles the best parts from the original books into a humorous punctuation primer.

BOOK EXCERPT:

A giant kids' playground certainly sounds like fun, but you might want to watch out in the giant kid's playground; he has a tendency to step on people. A sign stating, "we're here to help", would definitely disappoint the customers if the apostrophe were removed. Lynne Truss and Bonnie Timmons once again illustrate the hilarious confusion that punctuation can cause. Having dealt with the comma in Eats, Shoots & Leaves for Children, here they take on the apostrophe using lively, subversive pictures from one of America's leading illustrators and show how much chaos can ensue from one tiny squiggle.
