E-mergency! (Tom Lichtenheld)

Tom Lichtenheld
Chronicle Books
Fiction, YA Picture Book
****+ (Good/Great)

DESCRIPTION: All the letters of the alphabet live together in a big house. When E falls down the stairs, another letter has to take over until she recovers.

REVIEW: A silly little picture book, it's riddled with spoken and visual puns for kids and adults alike. For instance, the letters D and C spend their time in the attic reading old comics, while P takes an extraordinary number of restroom breaks and Y can't stop asking questions. E being the most used letter in the English language, her absence and substitution causes no end of trouble. It's lightweight fun for readers new and old.
