Summary

The stickler-tickling punctuation polemic is even more fun with the whimsical art of acclaimed New Yorkercartoonist Pat Byrnes The runaway bestseller that has everyone minding their pís and qís (and their commas and semicolons), Eats, Shoots & Leaveshas delighted audiences around the world, sold more than 1.6 million copies in North America and elevated Lynne Truss to superstickler status among those in the know. Now the book is beautifully packaged with more than fifty vivid, full-color illustrations throughout by renowned cartoonist Pat Byrnes. Each illustration brings to life a different punctuation pitfall in a wickedly playful style that matches Trussís trademark wit. We hope youíll agree that itís a chocolate-and- peanut-butter combination (even better than the sum of its parts). Eats, Shoots & Leaves: Illustrated Editionis also accompanied by a colorful foreword by wordsmith extraordinaire Frank McCourt.
