Exclamation Mark (Paperback)
From the bestselling creators of Duck! Rabbit!, an exciting tale of self-discovery!
A perfect gift for graduation!
He stood out here.
He stood out there.
He tried everything to be more like them.
It's not easy being seen. Especially when you're NOT like everyone else. Especially when what sets you apart is YOU.
Sometimes we squish ourselves to fit in. We shrink. Twist. Bend. Until -- ! -- a friend shows the way to endless possibilities.
In this bold and highly visual book, an emphatic but misplaced exclamation point learns that being different can be very exciting! Period.
