E-mergency! by Tom Lichtenheld follows the trials and tribulations of the alphabet after letter e is injured. Like Charlie's alphabet in the series by Audrey and Bruce Wood, the letters all live together. In such close quarters, an accident is sure to happen.
After a lot talking and a bit of panic, it's decided that letter o should stand in for e. So from then on, all the words that would normally go. It makes for a tongue twister of a read-aloud.
For fans of visual humor, the book is full of intricate illustrations. Every letter has a part to play and together they can be rather snarky.
The book was a hit with both of my children — one a kindergartner and the other a fourth grader.
