>Ella Minnow Pea. Good book, easy read I think it at a Jr. high reading level but the idea was really interesting. Its about the importance of language and introduces the reader to a fictional island which has been founded by the creator of the palindrome (sentence which contains all the letters of the alphabet) “the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog”. The society begins to lose letters of the alphabet as they are banned by the council, the only government the small island has. It is interesting to see how even the loss of a seemingly less frequented ‘Z’ can affect the language of a group of people.
