Okay, maybe not the most awesome thing ever, but pretty darned close.
Yes, that’s right, it’s the illustrated Elements of Style.
Other word nerds will appreciate that Strunk and White’s Elements of Style is like a Bible for MRP’s people.
I have no idea what would possess someone to make illustrations for what is basically a manual for good grammar. But they are sassy little drawings, to be sure, such as this one, which illustrates, “Polly loves cake more than she loves me.”
A little research turns up this explanation, plus news that there is also an Elements of Style song cycle. What could be next? “The Elements of Style: A Musical” by Andrew Lloyd Webber?
p.s.: The Elements of Style and Charlotte’s Web are at the pinnacle of great American literature, to be sure, but if you really want to delve into E.B. White, MRP recommends you dive into some of his essays.
