Mindy Hardwick - Children's Literature

Grammar snobs are lurking. They are ready to offer their services with anything but a gentle approach. Who really knows how to use the word whom? Most of us. It's just common sense. On the other hand, very few of us understand commas. This book includes short essays on topics such as prepositions, dangling modifiers, commas, colons, semicolons, and every grammar rule in-between. This lively book with humorous essays is a sure winner with adults; however, it is questionable for the teen reader set. In order to make the essays more appealing to for teens, more teen-friendly examples and language are needed. Librarians and teachers might want to look at a copy of this for their own shelves, but are better off to skip buying a book for the school or classroom library. 2006, Penguin, Ages 18 up.
