Only Carol Diggory Shields could reduce a whole body of knowledge to forty incisive, hilarious, and all-encompassing poems!
In this newest addition to the BrainJuice series, Carol Diggory Shields undertakes to impart all the really important facets of the English language -- and impart she does! Do you want the last word on punctuation? Spelling? Diagramming a sentence? Drafting a letter, keeping a journal, writing poetry? No aspect of English is left unexamined, and both students and teachers will not only find BrainJuice: English extremely cool, but they will be forever grateful to the author for supplying them with "36 Ways to Say Cool" (see sample below*).
Supporting the author's heroic efforts to make English funny, comprehensible and comprehensive, as well as irresistible, Tony Ross offers art that is funny, comprehensible, comprehensive, and extremely irresistible!
*A small sampling from "36 Way to Say Cool": Groovy, great, the cat's meow, awesome, chill, phat, wow, marvy, dandy, swell, divine, nifty, peachy-keen, fine!
