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.

* The bite-sized exercises in each chapter and longer texts in `The Final Challenge' put punctuation skills to the test.
