A bit of a caveat here for the emptor; do note that this is, as advertised, a simplified, picture-book take on that best-selling work with the very similar title. More appropriate for middle-school children than for grammarians, it is not likely to elicit the promised "gales of laughter" from adults. Not a bad book, but one that does perhaps stretch the limits of the "Eats, Shoots" franchise.

A Fun Book
This book amusingly demonstrates how the placement of a comma can change the meaning of a word. I enjoyed it personally; I bought it, however, to teach an English class about commas, and as clear as it is to the grammatically minded, I'm not sure they will be able to understand.
