About: When Pen decide to write a book, he is stunned to find his words keep falling out of his book. How can he stop them from escaping the page? An ingenious solution: a dot. A full stop. Period.

As Pen cruises through this punctuated book, he also discovers how to jazz up his text with a comma and even how to ask questions with a question mark.

This new book, a first from the authors, combines simple but bright illustrations with a series of colourful speech bubbles that make learning about punctuation fun. The pen and punctuation characters chat to each other like any children would, making it something kids can easily relate to.
