Definitely a good grammar reference guide.
Nov 05, 2008 Tracy rated it 4 of 5 stars
Recommends it for: English majors. Or people who hate grammar or think that it's too hard to learn.
The title is true: learning about grammar is broken down and sometimes illustrated with "the funnies" from a Sunday paper. I read it in college for a grammar/ English language class I was required to take. It's pretty helpful. I think I will read it again to refresh.
This book I read years ago, but I found it the other day and I was thinking about it. It really helps with understanding grammar, and it makes sense in a funny way. I liked it, and if you are having trouble with grammar, it's a useful book to read.
This book explains the basics of grammar. It was a nice little refresher for me.

This is a great reference guide for upper elementary grade students.

What can I say, I am a dorky writer type.
