The punctuation panda is back!
Armed with a permanent marker, a smidgen of confidence, and a copy of ‘Can You Eat, Shoot and Leave?’, everyone now has the chance to become a member of the punctuation elite.
This book is a light and humorous workbook to accompany Lynne Truss' 'Eats, Shoots and Leaves'. A 'challenge yourself' format to appeal both to people who think they are good at punctuating and those who want to get better at it.
The book contains chapters which follow the chapters of Eats, Shoots and Leaves and present guidance for correct usage and exercises to put them into practice.
The tone of the book is light. For example, there are exercises in using commas which ask the readers to add commas to a passage and then do a magazine-style questionnaire looking at what kind of person they are depending on how many they used correctly.
The final section contains whole passages which need punctuation.
