Basher Basics: Punctuation created and illustrated by Simon Basher, Written by Mary Budzik:
With its lively, creative approach, this is a unique and highly memorable one-stop guide to using punctuation marks correctly. Each mark is each represented by its own character - from unassuming Semicolon to loud-mouthed Exclamation Mark - who explain in their own words what makes them tick and how they are used. “Dos and “Dont”s provide practical advice to help every child unravel the rules and regulations of the English language.

About the Author

Artist and designer Simon Basher has fun playing in the world of contemporary character design. Inspired by a love of simple line work and a rich colour palette, his characters fill the gap between edgy Manga and the cuteness of Hello Kitty!

The concept of the book is quite good but the execution could be a little better. I get the feeling, those who don't need the book will be able to understand it, while those who need help with their punctuation may find it confusing.

It's not a book that a child could grapple with alone but with the help of an adult it could be a lot of fun.
