'Mark loved punctuation. For starters, it looked funky, and its symbols are understood in all languages. There's a sign for an exclamation and a question, a dollar, brackets, an AND, an AT and an ASTERISK, as well as one for an ELLIPSIS...a dot, dot, dot.' This special picture book cleverly combines words and visuals for a delightful dose of wordplay and fabulous fun with grammar. Punctuation Mark fills a gap in the market by crossing the boundary between fiction and fact; the content is educational in a cheeky, playful way.
