Since the success of Eats, Shoots and Leaves there have been a rash of
other books jumping on the bandwagon, such as Shoots, Leaves and Eats (a
cookbook), Eats, Shites and Leaves (a parody) and Eats, Poops & Leaves
(a book of baby etiquette for new parents)! One of the more recent
Grammar Snobs Are Great Big Meanies, which bills itself as the antidote
to Truss's book.
In addition Eats, Shoots and Leaves has spawned the usual range of calendars and other promotional items, and in July 2006 a version for children will be published, Eats Shoots & Leaves : Why, Commas Really Do Make a Difference!
