Product description

Review

"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
