The letter E has fallen down the stairs and ended up in the hospital. Now the only way to get her back on her feet is for everyone to stop using her. But who will substitute for E? The other letters have to make a decision, ASAP. Z is too sleepy, P is always in the bathroom, and Y asks way too many questions. Thankfully, O rolls in to save the day, because he's "so well-rounded." Now E can rost up and got bottor . . . as long as ovorybody follows the rulos. Chock-full of verbal and visual puns, this zany book is sure to tickle both the brain and the funny bone.

E gets injured and has to be taken out of the alphabet so that she can recover. The whole world has to stop using the letter E.

Not going to lie, I found this both super fun to read and incredibly difficult to read. I think kids would have a lot of fun filling in the E's to decode this, and the little aside jokes about the other grammar rules are fun! Also it was incredibly tempting to write this with no E's.

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!
