This book is by the same author as Zero the Hero. it is a fun way to learn all the ways the Letter E is used in words.

This is a fun take on an ABC book. "E-mergency is about a family of letters, living in the same house, and one morning E took a dive down the stairs and broke his leg! The letters are frantic, because they now need someone to replace E while he recovers. They decided that since O is so well-rounded, he should replace E. Then chaos ensues as everyone tries to translate the new words now that E has been replaced with O!

This book is hilarious. I loved all the puns and fun illustrations of the letters. It does have an important message that every letter has an important job to be in the right place. I thought it was great that they showed different situations in which the letter O shouldn't be where the letter E usually is. My favorite was the newspaper and grapo jolly. Very clever and quite humorous. I would highly recommend for a child learning the alphabet or a young student learning the importance of spelling. ( )

This book shows the importance of vowel placement. The letter E is replaced with O throughout the story and it depicts how confusing sentences and words would be. For example, on one page it shows the lunch specials for elementary school. In the picture the little girl is looking at the menu and can't figure out what's for lunch because it says "moat loaf groon salad poas." This book is a helpful tool to show younger students how important vowel placement is. In the back of the book it shows how frequent the letters in the alphabet are. ( )

It's an e-mergency! The letter E took a tumble and the only way to get her back on her foot is for people to stop using her. But who can take her place? The other letters have to make a decision ASAP. Z is too sleepy and Y asks way too many questions. Thankfully, O rolls in to try and save the day. Now E can rest up and got better. . . as long as everybody follows the rules. Chock-full of verbal and visual puns, this zany book is sure to tickle both the brain and the funny bone.
