Penny and the Punctuation Bee by Moira Rose Donohue & Jenny Law
The Punctuation Bee is coming up and a range of punctuation mark characters are excitedly preparing. Elsie (an exclamation point) is sure she will win, but little Penny (a period) and Quentin (a question mark) are determined to practice and practice in order to triumph. Who will win in the end?
In their review, Booklist said, "Writing with humor and verve, Donohue creates a story that primary-grade children will enjoy." This is not one of our favorites in this category, but we decided to include it on this list for fans of Alfie the Apostrophe, which is listed above. If you liked that title (by the same author and with the same illustration style), you'll likely like this as well.
