It's the moment all the punctuation marks have been eagerly awaiting: assignment time, There are plenty of open positions for apostrophes as contractions soon there's only one job left--for a possessive--and only one apostrophe to fill it: non other than Greedy Apostrophe. It's not long before his greed gets out of hand, and he jumps into signs where he doesn't belong. What will it take to put Greedy Apostrophe back in his place? This clever and zany language arts picture book will have kids eager to learn the tricks of using an apostrophe. The clever text explains some fairly complex punctuation rules in a humorous way that certainly beats any boring grammar workbook. Cartoon-style illustrations in bright citrus shades help get the punctuation points across effectively . . . teachers will want to give Greedy Apostrophe a gold star for his efforts, for it's a rare teaching tool that conveys its lessons while being funny as well. —Kirkus Reviews
