Or should that be "Reading punctuation, and laughing"?
If you're Anne-with-an-e and Betsy, it's the latter, thanks to Eats, Shoots & Leaves: Why, Commas Really Do Make a Difference! by Lynne Truss.
I loved Truss's original book, Eats, Shoots and Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation and now, there's a version for my kids. With examples such as "huge, hot dogs" and "slow children crossing" it's sure to elicit fits of giggles. We saw this book at a friend's house, and don't have our own copy yet, but you can bet it's on the acquisitions list.
