Product Description

Basher Books now cover more than just science! Punctuation will help students remember proper punctuation skills (in both scientific and everyday English writing!) as they learn to identify each punctuation mark with its own personality.

Each mark is portrayed as a cute creature that's exemplified by its most prominent feature. Organized by groups (e.g. Capital Letters, the Comma Crew), each category has an introductory entry with the illustrations for that chapter assembled on one page, helping kids to see and remember which terms belong to which group.

Each creature has its own full-page illustration and entry written from a fun, casual, first-person perspective; children will learn about exclamation marks, contraction apostrophes, possessive apostrophes, clause commas, introducing commas, parenthesis, dashes, semicolons, and more. 64 pages, softcover, with glossary and index.

Publisher's Description

Basher Basics: Punctuation created and illustrated by Simon Basher, Written by Mary Budzik:
 
With its lively, creative approach, this is a unique and highly memorable one-stop guide to using punctuation marks correctly. Each mark is each represented by its own character – from unassuming Semicolon to loud-mouthed Exclamation Mark – who explain in their own words what makes them tick and how they are used. “Do’s and “Don’t”s provide practical advice to help every child unravel the rules and regulations of the English language.

Author Bio

Artist and designer Simon Basher has fun playing in the world of contemporary character design. Inspired by a love of simple line work and a rich colour palette, his characters fill the gap between edgy Manga and the cuteness of Hello Kitty!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Perky, first-person characterizations (“Straight up and down, I’m the party-hearty punctuation mark”) combine with clear examples (“You’re the best!”) to form an effective and friendly guide.
 
Booklist
Written with attitude as well as grammatical awareness, the first-person paragraphs are more readable than one might expect. . . . An informative and graphically bold addition to the grammar shelf.
