Concise English handbook covering how to do research, how to draft a paper, how to finalize a paper. Covers grammar and all major academic styles: MLA, APA, CSE, and SMS.

For first-year courses in Composition.

An Accessible and Visually Engaging Guide to Writing
Distinctively designed, The Little DK Handbook stands apart from other handbooks. Visually rich two-page spreads marry design and content in a way that makes information appealing and understandable. Students will learn to narrow down topics, find and cite sources properly, present information clearly, craft arguments and hone their voices, and adhere to conventions.

With more attention to research – particularly online research – than other handbooks, The Little DK provides a solid foundation in information literacy. Grammar and documentation (MLA, APA, CMS, CSE) are presented in an approachable, accessible way. The groundbreaking layout creates a consistent look and feel that helps students connect with the material, find information, and recognize solutions to writing problems they often don’t know how to look up.
