little lit book series: words and wordplay

This month's edition of #littlelitbookseries is all about words and word play.   We're featuring books that celebrate the cleverness and nuances of language and its sounds, grammar, linguistic devices, various lexicons—the big and little things that contribute to the beauty and complexity of language.  Word mavens and logophiles, be sure to check in on our feed @littlelitbookseries as we share more linguistic wonders there throughout the month.

If you've ever questioned whether or not commas do make a difference, look no further than the picture book version of Eats, Shoots & Leaves written by Lynne Truss and illustrated by Bonnie Timmons.  It'll make you think twice the next time you see a badly punctuated sentence, and either cringe or chuckle at it.
