The author’s faux-naïve illustrations, showing both humans and marks in a range of skin shades, are bright and fairly bounce off the page. Solid information presented with humor and energy.

Synopsis

On the first day of the new school year, Miss Marks’ class holds an election, inspiring the punctuation marks to hold their own. Who would make the better President? A bold, emphatic Exclamation Point? Or the more thoughtful, inquisitive Question Mark? And who could be a better VP than Apostrophe, whose job has always been to take the place of others?! Quotation Marks have SO much to say about it all! The conclusion (says Colon): The kids in Miss Marks’ class need them ALL!
