Commas really do matter! You might want to eat a huge hot dog, but a huge, hot dog would run away pretty quickly if you tired to take a bite out of him.

Adapted from the #1 bestseller Eats, Shoots and Leaves, this book is sure to elicit gales of laugher and better punctuation from all who read it. Recommended for ages 6 and up.
