Unwrapping the Story

This is a sweet book that is written in rhyme and offers a unique playful way of incorporating the letters of the alphabet into a suspenseful mystery story.  

The letter C jumps over three pots and a pan and lands smack into the garbage can. 

"C kicked and wiggled
 and let out a shout,
"Hey someone help me,
I can't get out!" 

Oh my!  What a dreadful situation he finds himself in.  He is trapped in the refuge.  The other letters of the alphabet realize they must work together to rescue their friend and bring him to safety once again.  After scurrying around to rally the team the letters discover that the three-armed letter E is missing and much needed if this rescue is going to be a success, after all she has the most arms.  When the letters probe deeper into Es disappearance they find that the letters O, P, and R have also vanished.  It's an alphabet mystery indeed!  U rides in on a horse sporting a superhero's cape to impart some vital information to the frustrated frantic group. 

"U had the scoop,
"Psst, haven't you heard?
O. P. R, and E
are off making a word." 

The case cracks wide open with the use of those four letters which results in a happily-ever-after ending.  The alphabet is whole once again... HURRAY! 

The illustrations are lively, colourful and fun.  This book is a great way to reinforce letter recognition while engaging kids in a delightful storyline.  Kudos for the original concept.  I highly recommend this book.
