As Patricia T. O'Conner proved in the original Woe Is I, a national bestseller, grammar can be entertaining and easy to understand. And now she's made it fun for middle-graders. With funny chapters like “Incredible Shrinking Words,” silly poems about meatballs, and examples that reference Shrek and earwax jelly beans, kids will know this isn't a dry, boring reference book. Instead, conversational language and humorous examples painlessly illuminate the rules of the English language.

Like a humorous Strunk and White for 4th through 8th graders, this is destined to become a must-have for every English classroom and student.

O'Conner's lack of jargon makes the book's grammar approachable and fresh.
