Have you ever felt unimportant?  Does it seem like others with more talents, more money, more "everything" are much more valuable? That is the way X felt, also, but one day he discovered that was not really so. Join X in his discovery in this delightfully written story of one letter's venture in discovering his worth. The book cover and illustrations are marvelously done. They are bright, colorful and with much detail. X's tale was very creative and original. The inspiration of the author in its use accentuated an important point while getting his message across to those reading ad listening. It did miss  few points I felt would have increased it's relevance even more. This is a tremendous book for educators use and for Summer Reading Programs. My review of this book offers a Four and a Half Stars rating. This book was sent to me by the author for an honest review, of which I have given.
