Book Description

Feb. 1 2011
X is exasperated. Every other letter in the alphabet has so much to do and plays such important roles in making words. X expects more. He calls for a vote on a new alphabet (gasp!). According to the Alphabet Constitution, X has every right to question the status quo. But the night before the vote, X is plagued by dreams of what could happen if he were to take on another letter’s job. S has to run around a lot making singular words plural, except sometimes he isn’t needed at all, and sometimes he needs to bring along another letter . . . it was all very confusing. Then X thought he’d like to be E. E was very important and very useful. E agreed. But E was exhausted. He was in thousands of words and constantly busy. X didn’t think E’s job was a good idea after all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, fun, fun, refreshing and informative! Feb. 13 2012
By Deborah Sandford - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The letters in Alphabet City are content except for X. He's eXcited and eXasperated with the alphabet. Tired of being third to last and made an example of with the same old words all the time, such as Xray and Xylophone, X calls for a new alphabet. The night before the vote, he wonders "what it's like to have the rules and responsibilities of other letters." A portent dream enlightens X (and the reader) to the functions and obligations of other letters. This farcically contrived story will most definitely enhance a beginning student's realization of the proper and sometime agonizing behavior of the letters of the American English alphabet. Brilliantly colorful, kooky and informative, the illustrations make this a visual delight. Readers will rollick trying to unriddle the colors and caricatures of each letter.

Loved the story and the neat info about the rules of the alphabet. My 4 and 2 year old kids want it read to them every night. The graphics are also good...something that makes the kids understand what's going on as the story progresses. Recommend this book.

This is an awesome story. One of my son's favorites. Jef Czekaj also has another book on hip-hop, which for me was a kick for me to read to my son -- lots of inside jokes.
