The punctuation workout for sticklers and rookies alike.

The punctuation panda is back!

Armed with a permanent marker, a smidgen of confidence, and a copy of ‘Can You Eat, Shoot and Leave?’, everyone now has the chance to become a member of the punctuation elite.

Established punctuation sticklers:
Fine-tune existing skills, taking guilty pleasure from testing your (already somewhat unsettling) seventh sense.

Confused novices:
Never again inflict flawed and perplexing punctuation on your innocent readers.

The only official workbook for the international bestseller ‘Eats, Shoots and Leaves.’

• Introductory Cosmo-style questionnaire helps readers identify their level of punctuation prowess.
• Mirrors the structure and light-hearted style of Lynne Truss’s hugely popular ‘Eats, Shoots and Leaves’. Topics include apostrophes, commas, colons and semicolons, hyphens and more.
• Each chapter concentrates on one particular punctuation mark. Origin, usage rules and their exceptions introduce the entertaining activities which have a ‘challenge-yourself’ format.
• The bite-sized exercises in each chapter and longer texts in ‘The Final Challenge’ put punctuation skills to the test.
• Specially designed for eReaders including iPad, with clear text throughout.
