Topics include apostrophes, commas, colons and semicolons, hyphens and more.Each chapter concentrates on one particular punctuation mark. Origin, usage rules and their exceptions introduce the entertaining activities which have a 'challenge-yourself' format.The bite-sized exercises in each chapter and longer texts in 'The Final Challenge' put punctuation skills to the test.
