Getting to Grips with Grammar Series
by Capstone Press/First Library

Series Review
Misguided choice of verb in the title notwithstanding, this series delivers a thorough introduction to the major elements and rules of the English language. Each book contains bold fonts, photographs, illustrations, and vibrant color backgrounds. Thoughtfully and, at times humorously written (Punctuation emphasizes     the     importance    of  spaces     with “ifyoudontleavespaceswritinglookssilly”), speech-bubble like text boxes and cartoon characters give the books an informal, comic-book feel, making the fundamentals of sentence structure, word usage, and grammar palatable, if a bit distracting.  Each title concludes with an exercise (the answer is provided on the same page). A lively set only worth the money if intended to complement more academic material, this series instructs in a lighthearted but effective style that’s sure to enhance grammar lessons.
