Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up-There's a lot of grammar packed into this compact volume, and anyone who doesn't have a computer with spell check and grammar check needs it. Each of the three sections (``Building Sentences,'' ``Parts of Speech,'' and ``Style and Usage'') is preceded by a detailed table of contents. Many necessary examples are provided. There is an index, but the excellent tables of contents are more useful. All in all, a handy guide.-Kate Hegarty Bouman, Susquehanna Valley Junior High School, Conklin, NY

    The Best Grammar Book

    I have perused myriads of Grammar books, but none have been as intriguing, explanatory, and user-friendly as this book. It is an excellent reference book for all ages. It would be my dream for every family in America to have a copy of this book in their homes. If you need help on your grammar or are unsue of a particular rule, look it up in Marvin Terban's book.
