Overview

What if the alphabet started to misbehave while you were trying to learn it?

Aldo Renaldo has been having trouble with his alphabet, but he finally thinks he knows it and wants to tell Mommy. When he checks one last time, he finds the letters around his walls are behaving badly. The K knocks out the O, and the W does cartwheels with the M. He tries to restore order, but cannot. All is not lost, though, because when Mommy enters, Aldo uses the new words he has heard from the letters, as he recites the alphabet. When he looks up, the renegade alphabet has restored its proper order.

A Finalist in the San Francisco Writers Conference Writing Contest, Aldo Renaldo was inspired by the author's experience as a lefty who wrote a few letters backwards in the early days!
