The "Grammar Detective" invites readers to get to grips with English grammar by solving a series of short murder mysteries, each of them illustrated. There are then further exercises - word searches, crosswords and puzzles all come together to help introduce and reinforce grammatical skills and knowledge. The book introduces aspects of grammar such as nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, clauses and phrases, and includes a variety of test exercises. It also demystifies punctuation, and explains full stops, colons, semi-colons and speech marks. This fun and engaging book is an ideal introduction to English grammar for students, or a handy refresher course for those whose knowledge of grammar and punctuation is a little rusty.
