Show synopsis The punctuation workout for sticklers and rookies alike. 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. Established punctuation sticklers: Fine-tune existing skills, taking guilty pleasure from testing your (already somewhat unsettling) seventh sense. Confused novices: Never again inflict flawed and perplexing punctuation on your innocent readers. The only official workbook for the international bestseller 'Eats, Shoots and Leaves.' * Introductory Cosmo-style questionnaire helps readers identify their level of punctuation prowess. * Mirrors the structure and light-hearted style of Lynne Truss's hugely popular 'Eats, Shoots and Leaves'. Topics include apostrophes, commas, colons and semicolons, hyphens and more. * Each chapter concentrates on one particular punctuation mark. Origin, usage rules and their exceptions introduce the entertaining activities which have a 'challenge-yourself' format. * The bite-sized exercises in each chapter and longer texts in 'The Final Challenge' put punctuation skills to the test.
