Publisher Comments:

Now in a handsome, hilariously illustrated new edition: The stickler-tickling punctuation polemic that has sold more than 1.6 million copies in North America 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 and Leaves has delighted audiences around the world and elevated Lynne Truss to superstickler status among those in the know. Language lovers everywhere will cheer the arrival of this new edition, beautifully packaged in a larger format with a red cloth-over-board cover and containing more than fifty vivid, full-color drawings. Created 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. Eats, Shoots and Leave Illustrated Edition is also accompanied by a colorful foreword by wordsmith extraordinaire Frank McCourt.

Published just in time for holiday gift-giving, Eats Shoots and Leaves Illustrated Edition is sure to be at the top of wish lists coast to coast.

You can spend a small fortune buying books on punctuation or you can simply buy this book. Peppered with punctuation history, examples and humor, Truss turns a boring subject into a humorous view of punctuation as an art instead of a chore. A great and necessary reference.
