The Logic 
of Prepositional Phrases

From My Book of Favorite Fairy Tales

by Edric  Vredenburg; Illustrated by Jennie Harbour
Directions: 1. Place parentheses around each prepositional phrase. Draw an arrow from the beginning of each phrase to the word it modifies.
2. Above each phrase write the question that the phrase answers in relation to the word it modifies. (What kind of? Which? What? Whose? Where? When? How Long? Why? How? Under What Condition?)
3. Underline subjects once, finite verbs twice, and label complements ("PN," "PA," "IO," "DO").
