It's an E-mergency! The letter E took a tumble and the only way to get her back on her foot is for people to stop using her. But who can take her place? The other letters have to make a decision ASAP. Z is too sleepy and Y asks way too many questions. Thankfully, O rolls in to try and save the day. Now E can rost up and got bottor . . . as long as ovorybody follows the rulos. Chock-full of verbal and visual puns, this zany book is sure to tickle both the brain and the funny bone.

This is a really fun story (with great illustrations) about what the alphabet would be like without the letter E. It's probably best to get this for a child who can already read, so they can more fully grasp it.

My two and four grandsons ask for this often, especially the four year old. The humor is often over their heads, especially the acronyms, but the four year old insist I read every caption and want me to explain what I can.

Fun! Yes it is hard to read at times and the jokes will go by younger kids, but worth the effort and older kids should love it!

Oh, how I love this book. It's clever, funny and a true challenge to read out loud (think about NOT using any "e"s in words, and you'll understand why). But I truly fell head over heals for this book when I learned that the co-author, Ezra Fields-Meyer, is a young, autistic child who caught Lichtenheld's notice after creating an amazing animated short called "Alphabet House", which is the inspiration for this book. Ezra's story is so inspiring and heartwarming, and chronicled in a book by his father, Tom Fields-Meyer, called "Following Ezra".
