HAVE YOU EATEN GRANDMA?

HAVE YOU EATEN GRANDMA?

Or, the Life-Saving Importance of Correct Punctuation, Grammar, and Good English

By Gyles Brandreth. This lively, witty, and effective guide to the ins and outs of the English language covers everything from dangling participles to transitive verbs, age-old conundrums like "lay" vs. "lie," and the confounding influences of social media on our everyday language. Filled with brief—and often hilarious—examples of what NOT to do, the book's concise, simply explained advice helps readers avoid common linguistic pitfalls and improve their written-communication skills. Among the chapters: "Apostrophe Now," "Spelling Is Big Potatoes," "Of Mice & Meece & Mouses," "A Bad Spell of Whether," and "LOL—YOLO—Hahaha." Grades 9 and up. Index. Further reading. Atria. 320 pages. ©2018.
