Eats, Shoots & Leaves For Children: Why, Commas Really Do Make a Difference Summary


Eats, Shoots & Leaves has sold over 3 million copies world-wide. This illustrated version for children shows how the humble comma can change the meaning of a sentence completely... You might want to eat a huge hot dog, but a huge, hot dog would run away pretty quickly if you tried to take a bite out of him. "Children Drive Slowly" on a road-sign doesn't quite sum up what kids do in their spare time. And we all know now that the comma in "Eats shoots and leaves" is a crucial one. Lynne Truss and Bonnie Timmons illuminate the hilarious confusion that one mere dot with a tail can cause, in this follow-up to the number one best-seller Eats, Shoots & Leaves - which this time features lively and subversive pictures by one of America's leading illustrators. This picture book is sure to elicit gales of laughter and better punctuation from all who read it.
