Book Overview


Let’s admit it, we all struggle with Grammar. There, they’re or their? Who’s or whose? Me or I? Fewer or less? Inside this little book one of Britain’s top Grammar Gurus reveals all you need to know about Grammar but were afraid to ask.

Worry no more, Caroline is here to take the grind out of grammar in easy bite-sized chunks. With insights into hyphens and the dreaded apostrophe, comparatives and superlatives and whether England is singular or plural, she offers clear but light-hearted advice on getting things right when it matters – and relaxing just a little when it doesn’t.

Beautifully produced, this little book is a treasure in itself and makes a perfect gift. Be careful who you give it to though; you never know who is going to start picking you up on your misplaced modifiers.

About the author


Caroline Taggart worked in publishing as an editor of popular non-fiction for 30 years before being asked to write I USED TO KNOW THAT, which became a Sunday Times bestseller. Following that she co-wrote MY GRAMMAR AND I (OR SHOULD THAT BE 'ME'?) As a result of these books and HER LADYSHIP'S GUIDE TO THE QUEEN'S ENGLISH, published by the National Trust, she has appeared frequently on BBC Breakfast and on national and regional radio, talking about language, grammar and whether or not Druids Cross should have an apostrophe. Her latest book is A SLICE OF BRITAIN: AROUND THE COUNTRY BY CAKE. Her website is carolinetaggart.co.uk and you can follow her on Twitter @citaggart
