With its lively, creative approach, this is a unique and highly memorable one-stop guide to using punctuation marks correctly. Each mark is each represented by its own character - from unassuming Semicolon to loud-mouthed Exclamation Mark - who explain in their own words what makes them tick and how they are used. "Do's and "Don't"s provide practical advice to help every child unravel the rules and regulations of the English language.

Review quote

School Library JournalPerky, first-person characterizations ("Straight up and down, I'm the party-hearty punctuation mark") combine with clear examples ("You're the best!") to form an effective and friendly guide. BooklistWritten with attitude as well as grammatical awareness, the first-person paragraphs are more readable than one might expect. . . . An informative and graphically bold addition to the grammar shelf.
