DescriptionGrammar can be confusing, no matter if you're an adult, a child, or well . . . even a ghoul. And its rules can be hard to remember or keep straight. Ghastly things can happen when a comma or even a simple period is misplaced. But never fear! We have the perfect book to help you keep your head and your cool. In The Ghouls' Guide to Good Grammar basic rules of grammar such as correct punctuation and appropriate word choices are explained from a monster's point of view. For example, see how a simple comma clears up any misunderstanding between Vanessa and her parents. Vanessa Vampire loves cooking, her parents, and her baby sister versus Vanessa Vampire loves cooking her parents and baby sister. For anyone needing a refresher course on how to use a hyphen or an apostrophe, or is confused by pesky contractions, The Ghouls' Guide to Good Grammar is for you. After all, choosing the right word and the right punctuation to use is as important as picking the right human being to eat for dinner. Back matter includes a short grammar quiz.
