author mixes up its and it's
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on March 22, 2022
Bought this for my grandson. I liked the content (mostly) and the breezy kid-friendly writing style. But found numerous instances of basic grammar mistakes, most often mistaking the possessive its for the contraction it's (it is). For example, page 223: "That's not such a farfetched idea on it's own." NO, get that apostrophe out of there. I started circling all the wrong usage so when my grandson reads it, he will be aware that the author could use a copy editor. It's disappointing to see a book written for kids reinforcing bad English. That's why I rated 3 stars instead of 4 or 5.
