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, story-telling and a champagne toast. You are cordially invited to join her for a spot of tea!

My Thoughts

This book enraptured me from the beginning. Mrs. Grammar Person is one to love from the start. Maybe it’s the fact that I enjoyed her love of grammar or the fact that she reminds me a bit of Mary Poppins. Whatever it is, I just love her!

Whatever it is, once again Barbara has written an adorable book with quite memorable characters. Another short story, so this was easy to get through but really I would have loved another 100 pages! Mrs. Grammar Person is just that cute!

Although this is a great way to teach grammar, there is a bit of a plot here as well! Although I may have to keep this mainly for the grammar reminders! Many of which I have forgotten or did not even know! Barbara has a way of giving what you would think would be rather dry information and twisting it so it is cute, fun, and something that I did not want to put down!

In short: Even if you do not enjoy grammar on the whole, this is a fun book with a plot other than grammar. Cute!

      It was adorable! I loved every word! Definitely a niche so people not so much into grammar would not love it, but I sure did!
