Ella Minnow Pea

Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn is third book that I have read in the week since school has gotten out. Ella Minnow Pea is a person that lives in the made up country of Nollop. The story is about the country banishing, one by one, different letters of the alphabet. It doesn't seem like a huge deal when the first letters are banished, since they are letters like z and q, but then it gets more difficult since soon the letters that are forbidden from use are much more common. The story is told in letter format, many written by Ella, but others written by family members like Amos, Tassie, Mittie, and Gwenette.

Clever title.

In this review, I don't think you gave us many hints about whether or not you liked the book. Perhaps that speaks for itself?

The best part of the book was it's unique story line. It is definitely for someone who likes language and words.

It is not a children's book, but a novel for adults.
