Don't Dangle Your Participle

Grammar lessons can be hard going for teachers, children and parents alike; anything which makes grammar more understandable and more enjoyable has to be a good thing in my opinion.
Participles and their correct usage are featured in this short but fun book, crammed with humorous colour illustrations depicting how a dangling or wrongly placed participle can completely change the meaning of a sentence, with some very funny results indeed.....
I enjoyed every page of this book and hope that other grammatical constructs will get their own titles in due course :-)
