about

The Know-Nonsense Guide to Grammar is an unforgettably funny grammar and literary device reference for kids featuring easy-to-grasp explanations and colorful illustrations.

Fuzzy on punctuation? Bamboozled by adverbs? Perplexed by the difference between idioms and irony? That’s totally understandable! But thinking you have to muddle your way through this confusion on your own? That’s utter nonsense!

This Know-Nonsense Guide to Grammar is packed with simple definitions (commas are used to separate words in a sentence and help readers know when to pause), memorable examples (The vampire loves cooking, his teddy bear, and his goldfish.), and funny illustrations that make the rules of language easy to understand.

Turn the pages to learn:

  • Parts of speech (nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, pronouns, and conjunctions)
  • The basic rules of grammar (capitalization, collective nouns, sequence of adjectives, and punctuation)
  • Literary devices that make good writers great (alliteration, analogies, similes, hyperbole, puns, irony, and much more)


Along the way, things may get a little loopy, but have no fear! While you’re laughing, you’ll also be learning. With a little practice, you’ll be a regular wordsmith!
