Description
The stickler-tickling punctuation polemic is even more fun with the whimsical art of acclaimed New Yorker cartoonist Pat Byrnes The runaway bestseller that has everyone minding their p's and q's (and their commas and semicolons), Eats, Shoots & Leaves has delighted audiences around the world, sold more than 1.6 million copies in North America and elevated Lynne Truss to superstickler status among those in the know. Now the book is beautifully packaged with more than fifty vivid, full-color illustrations throughout by renowned cartoonist Pat Byrnes. Each illustration brings to life a different punctuation pitfall in a wickedly playful style that matches Truss's trademark wit. We hope you'll agree that it's a chocolate-and- peanut-butter combination (even better than the sum of its parts). Eats, Shoots & Leaves: Illustrated Edition is also accompanied by a colorful foreword by wordsmith extraordinaire Frank McCourt.

display_description "Through sloppy usage and low standards on the Internet, in e-mail, and now 'txt msgs, ' we have made proper punctuation an endangered species ... Former editor Lynne Truss dares to say, in her delightfully urbane, witty and very English way, that it is time to look at our commas and semicolons and see them as the wonderful and necessary things they are ..."
