This book is a creative way of looking at the importance of commas! I loved this book and will share it with students for sure! The illustrations paint the picture of how different a sentence can be when you change the commas around. Very good book for introducing commas in class! ( )

This book is brilliant. Kids think the sentences are very funny. The pictures are great and help to explain the different meanings a sentence has when a comma is or isn't inserted. Punctuation made fun.

I requested this book by accident, but decided to read it anyway; very cute, and seems like it would be extremely useful in teaching children about commas.

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.
