From the bestselling creators of Duck! Rabbit!, an exciting tale of self-discovery!

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.

      This terrific book is about a [!] who is he stud out with the [.]. One day ran off & Then he meats a [?] who questions [!]. They go to the [.] & tells the [.] that [!] can say loud things. If you think this book is for you read The One Thing You'd Save. The theme is be yourself. This made me notice that everyone is different is a there own way.

            This is a terrific children's book. There's exclamation mark, the one that stands out compared to all other (which are the periods). Then one day exclamation mark meets the question mark. This book talk about how being unique is a good thing.
