Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 and 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 and Leaves: Illustrated Edition is also accompanied by a colorful foreword by wordsmith extraordinaire Frank McCourt.

Synopsis:

Language lovers can cheer the arrival of this new edition, beautifully packaged in a larger format with a red cloth-over-board cover and containing more than 50 vivid, full-color drawings by acclaimed "New Yorker" cartoonist Byrnes.
