Lee Woods has written a book for students who are tired of the same old grammar rules. "Students can learn how to write now, when they are young and searching. We make learning fun for adults, why not students?" Using humor, goofy characters, suspense, dialogue, and language play, Woods gives students 31 episodes and exercises in planning and mechanics that can satisfy core writing standards. His approach has earned the praise of teachers and students nationwide.
