    Lynne Truss is a writer and journalist who started out as a literary editor with a blue pencil and then got sidetracked. The author of three novels and numerous radio comedy dramas, she spent six years as the television critic of The Times of London, followed by four (rather peculiar) years as a sports columnist for the same newspaper. She won Columnist of the Year for her work for Women’s Journal. Lynne Truss also hosted Cutting a Dash, a popular BBC Radio 4 series about punctuation. She now reviews books for the Sunday Times of London and is a familiar voice on BBC Radio 4. She lives in Brighton, England.
    BONNIE TIMMONS is best known for inspiring and creating images for the television show Caroline in the City and illustrating numerous national ad campaigns.

    Illuminating the comical confusion the lowly comma can cause, this new edition of Eats, Shoots & Leaves uses lively, subversive illustrations to show how misplacing or leaving out a comma can change the meaning of a sentence completely.

    This picture book is sure to elicit gales of laughter—and better punctuation—from all who read it.

    • Eats Shoots and Leaves

      This is a great book for elementary school age kids who are struggling with grammar and punctuation daily. I brought it along to read to my child's 4th grade class at a school birthday party and it was a great hit with boys and girls alike! Everyone was laughing and enjoying the pictures-- it held their attention really well. A nice holiday gift for a teacher, too. I've already ordered the next one that has come out: Girls Like Spaghetti...
