about

A hilarious exploration of grammar especially for young readers. Now in paperback!

Shrek? Earwax-flavored jelly beans? Poems about meatballs? Who on earth would use all these to explain the rules of grammar? Must be Patricia T. O'Conner!

Just like Woe Is I, her national bestseller for adults, this young readers edition uses conversational language and witty, entertaining examples to show how fun and easy it can be to use good English. It's a humorous reference book you'll actually enjoy pulling off the shelf.

Like a humorous Strunk and White for 4th through 8th graders, this is destined to become a must-have for every English classroom and student.

Patricia T. O'Conner, a former editor at the New York Times Book Review, has written for many magazines and newspapers. She is the author of two other books on language and writing, Words Fail Me: What Everyone Who Writes Should Know About Writing and You Send Me: Getting It Right When You Write Online.

Editorial Reviews

"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
