The Best Little Grammar Collection Ever! combines three of The Grammar Diva's books to create a complete grammar handbook:

1) The Best Little Grammar Book Ever! is used by many schools and colleges. It is an easy-to-use grammar and punctuation guide that includes a writing lesson and a complete index. It also contains lists of commonly misspelled and mispronounced words and a glossary of grammar terminology. Contents include the parts of speech, sentence structure, punctuation, capitalization, dead words to avoid, double negatives, unclear pronouns and antecedents, agreement, comparison, misplaced modifiers, possessives, verb tense, irregular verbs, parallel structure, formatting lists, restrictive and nonrestrictive clauses, linking verbs, capitalizing titles, spelling out numbers, fragments and run ons, using jargon and slang.

2) The Best Little Grammar Workbook Ever! takes the information in the reference book and puts it into workbook format with over 100 exercises and quizzes, and a complete answer key in the back. Measure your growth with a comprehensive pretest and a final test.

3) Does Your Flamingo Flamenco? contains over 250 confusing word pairs, word groups, and idioms that challenge us all, for example, affect/effect, lay/lie, principal/principle, who/which/that, buck naked/butt naked. Information is presented in alphabetical order for ease of use.
