Fear not, gentle writer, Mrs. Grammar Person is here, and she has the answers to all of the questions you never thought to ask. As a dedicated and serious grammarian, she will do what it takes to be entertaining and enlightening but never vulgar or coarse. Heavens, no! Where are her smelling salts?

Warm and witty, Mrs. G.P. makes grammar interesting with rhyming, wishful thinking, storytelling, and a champagne toast. You are cordially invited to join her for a spot of tea!

Just a fun cute story with grammar lessons thrown in.

I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair review.

I’ve got to admit this was not my kind of book. But it was still enjoyable. I would have never picked this out by myself.

But it’s a really cute story. I’m not sure who the target demographic is but I’d absolutely recommend this to teenaged students. Reading and rereading a book like this is a great way to learn how to avoid common pitfalls.

If one is reading this for knowledge I’d recommend an ebook or physical copy. I understood most of this book prior to listening so I got some of the subtle things in this book (like homophones) but someone unfamiliar with things like that might miss some meaning listening instead of reading.

However if you (like me) are just looking for a cute fun read that just happens to be grammar based the audio book is great. The reader did a great job and it was absolutely entertaining listening to this.

There are some super creative bits in this novella that must have taken a HUGE effort to write (like the rhyming bits). I can’t imagine how long it must have taken to come up with all of that. It was truly impressive.

This seems to me like a book that despite its short length likely took as long to write as a several hundred page novel (or maybe that is just my bias thinking this was a huge effort to write?). Seriously impressive to me!

It’s well worth reading if you are a grammar person and or you just want a good quick read that might teach you something.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
