What if you could no longer use the letter y? You would no longer exist--and forget about going out to play, or what happened yesterday. In this wordsmithing tour-de-force, one letter after another disappears from the vocabulary of the citizens of Nollop, forbidden by the tyrranical authorities, and from the book itself. Ella Minnow Pea manages to be both clever and charming, and a neat commentary on the results of power run amok. Watch for the illustrated version coming out for Christmas 2008!
