Woe Is I JR.: The Younger Grammarphobe's Guide to Better English in Plain English Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As Patricia T. O?Conner proved in the original Woe Is I, a national bestseller, grammar can be entertaining and easy to understand. And now she?s made it fun for middle-graders. With funny chapters like ?Incredible Shrinking Words,? silly poems about meatballs, and examples that reference Shrek and earwax jelly beans, kids will know this isn?t a dry, boring reference book. Instead, conversational language and humorous examples painlessly illuminate the rules of the English language.

Like a humorous Strunk and White for 4th through 8th graders, this is destined to become a must-have for every English classroom and student.

Shrek? Earwax-flavored jelly beans? Poems about meatballs? Who on earth would use all these to explain the rules of grammar? Must be Patricia T. O'Conner!

Just like Woe Is I, her national bestseller for adults, the junior version uses conversational language and witty, entertaining examples to show how fun and easy it can be to use good English. It's a humorous reference book you'll actually enjoy pulling off the shelf.
