From the Publisher"Keith Polette and Nancy Polette, an author, presenter, and speaker, provide 45 reproducible stories that contain spelling and grammatical errors, with corrections, to teach children in grades three to eight editing skills. These are Shaggy Dog stories based on classic literature humorous versions of them that end with a joke or pun. The stories, such as Rapunzel, The Yellow Brick Road, and The Frankenstein Monster, instruct students what usage errors to watch out for and each has the same narrative structure."

"Reproducible passages with built-in errors are designed to help upper-elementary and middle-school students hone in on specific grammatical concepts through proofreading. The stories are goofy and familiar, with punny punch lines guaranteed to elicit groans."
