Can a guide to punctuation really be stuffed into a sixty-four page book? Tight writing and colorful illustrations characterize each punctuation mark and break down a subject that can be overwhelming.

This exciting concept book begins by explaining a simple sentence. From there it adds the Basic Bunch of punctuation punchy little period, the mysterious looking question mark, and the loud exclamation point.

Punctuation: The Write Stuff! doesn't miss a single punctuation mark, explaining usage in easy, fast-moving first person dialogue. The book also includes a glossary, index, and a fun pull-out wall poster.

This quick one-stop guide to punctuation is the second of three books in Simon Basher's Back to Basics concept series for middle graders. The series also includes books on chemistry and math. All offer great refreshers before going back to school.
