Review:

The point is to make children laugh while swallowing their grammatical medicine - and do they ever. (Wall Street Journal)

Lynne Truss is taking primary schools to task in her battle for grammatical correctness (Times Educational Supplement)

A hilarious illustrated version for children highlighting the confusion that can occur when a comma is put in the wrong place...Great for children and adults alike. (The Bookseller)

an amusing, colourful and educational book that helps children to get to grips with that all-important "little dot with the tail" (Observer)
