Florey's tone, throughout this delightful book, is one of spontaneous humor and warmth.
The book, however, assumes that you already do know how to diagram a sentence (or at least knew at one time because you learned it in school).
An interesting topic for a book, but Kitty Burns Florey in the end has little to say about it.
