Summary: Exclamation Mark stood out from the other punctuation marks, no matter how hard he tried to fit in. Then one day he met Question Mark and realized that he had his own gift of exclaiming!
Classroom Ideas: Of course, this is a great book for personification, as the punctuation marks are the characters. It also has a wonderful theme of finding your own talents and being yourself.
