Reviewer: Elizabeth Taylor, (Chicago Tribune Books)

"Diagramming sentences may have gone the way of the slide ruler, but this charming little book makes deconstruction of language fun. In this illustrated personal history, the author, a long-time copy editor, explores the birth and death of language mapping. In this handsome book, subjects, predicates, articles, gerunds and participles dance across the page, bringing delight to those who venture into the party."

"You don't have to be over age 50 or a Catholic school graduate to enjoy SISTER BERNADETTE'S BARKING DOG....Florey's keen memories of being schooled in this art and her humorous affection for it are contagious....Try it, you'll like it."

"This gem from copy editor Florey is a bracing ode to grammar; it's laced with a survivor's nostalgia for classrooms ruled by knuckle-cracking nuns who knew their participles."
