A book about a TINY full stop with a BIG responsibility.
Every story has to end with a full stop… even the one about the space dog.
Full Stop introduces us to every story’s most important character: Full Stop. But Full Stop has officially had enough. He’s fed up of having so much responsibility. And when the story of Robinson, a mischievous dog, gets too scary for him he wails: “I declare this the end of bedtime stories!”.
To help us understand his momentous decision Full Stop recounts the story and realises that it does have a happy ending after all – it’s neither the end for Robinson nor Full Stop! And thankfully Full Stop is willing to continue playing a role in new stories, as there’s a second book on the way!
Kaisa Happonen, who is best known for A Bear Called Mur, and artist and animator Joonas Utti have created a compelling character who is sick and tired of being in every story, always moving from one crazy adventure to the next. Full Stop is a delightful picture book that’s sure to entertain readers of all ages.
