"EXCLAMATION MARK,” by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld, Scholastic, $17.99 (all ages)

A story by a punctuation mark seems impossible, but this isn’t any ordinary mark like a quotation mark or a comma. This is an exclamation mark that tries to fit in but “wasn’t like everyone else. Period.”

Until one day he meets a question mark that teaches him endless possibilities. “It was like he broke free from a life sentence.”

“Exclamation Mark” has a seemingly simple lesson in being true to oneself and making a difference. Bravo!
