Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
With the mystery of Sophie's missing strawberry cupcake as a secondary storyline, the main topic of this book is the use and purpose of the question mark. The mystery sparks a lot of questions, which provide examples of using question marks as inquiries are made by the detective that is trying to solve the mystery. The grammar lesson passages describe how a question mark should be used; this text is located in the top-left portion of the page. Some children who read the book may need an explanation about the book's two concurrent storylines (i.e., the grammar lesson and the mystery). At the back of the book, Lyons provides a summary of the usage of the question mark. The activity for the question mark is the popular game "20 Questions," which provides verbal practice in asking questions and receiving yes/no answers. To learn more about punctuation, readers may appreciate a list of books including the other titles in the "Word Fun: Punctuation" series. The format and presentation of the information is similar that in other books from the series. Through the publisher's FactHound web site, readers can explore some punctuation websites.
