A very entertaining read. I was able to brush up my grammar and writing skills. The author kept everything short and sweet. No lengthy explanations.

There are many pictures to support the author's views, great use of cute characters (as you can see on the front cover) and quotes of famous authors. Even as an adult, I think it is a smart way to incorporate the graphics/quotations to reinforce his teachings.

Glad I spent the time to pick up this book!
