Apostrophe use

0

Wobbles is the child's nickname so I wasn't sure whether there should be an apostrophe after her name in this sentence or not, can you clarify it for me please?

 

 

Dragons were Wobbles' favourite animal, even though they weren't known to exist at all.

Apostrophes are used to show possession.  To show possession with a word ending in 's', add an apostrophe and an 's' to the end.  You show plural possession with an ending apostrophe.

Thank you Lewis, I find the apostrophe after a word difficult to take on board. I hadn't thought of apostrophe and adding the s.
