Reviewed by Samantha Gregory for Readers' Favorite The Day Letter A Ran Away by Michael Verrett is about the letters of the alphabet who live together in town. One day, Letter A decides that he doesn't want to be first anymore - first to rise, first in line - and so he decides to run away where nobody can find him. Later when letter B wakes up, he goes looking for A, but can't find him. He goes through all the letters searching for A and, as he does, the other letters realise they can't spell certain words without A. (We can spell kitten but we can't spell cat) Once they realise A is gone, they cast a vote to choose a new lead letter to take his place. D and U both want the position, but end up with the same vote - 12 each. Eventually B discovers that letter Z has run off too as he was tired of being last for everything. Without Z they couldn't have a winner in the vote. Michael Verrett has written a nice book for children in The Day Letter A Ran Away. The illustrations are attractive and look as if they could be on a TV show. It is a good book for children who are learning the alphabet and to spell words. I think it will do well in the market. I liked how the letters had 'personalities' to distinguish them from each other, although we never found out what became of A and Z in the end. Letter D is particularly memorable. Good luck with this book.
