This is a post for the A to Z Challenge. If you've been following along, you know the drill - I give first-time visitors the opportunity to catch up before starting in on today's post -
There are surprisingly few alphabet books that begin with the letter N, but I did find a darling and informative one about Christmas traditions in Latin America. Using the Hispanic alphabet, this book goes from A to Z, all 30 letters (But the author had to cheat on W). It seems in the Spanish language, words with W are even more rare than words with X!
This cultural aspect helps the possibly overdone topic of Christmas, which is my tangent today. Of course, you don't have to hear me ramble on about that. Instead enjoy the next installment of THE GREAT ALPHABET DISAST-
We interrupt this A to Z Challenge with some breaking developments regarding The Great Alphabet Disaster. While LMNO and P are still jammed together, we have a character sketch that the police are labeling “Letter of interest.” This sketch was drawn by the formidable C, a former member of the C.I.A.
Any information leading to the whereabouts of this letter will receive a reward of – hold on… It seems that we have a technical glitch. The sketch you are viewing is actually a letter from On Beyond Zebra written by Dr. Seuss. According to our sources, C’s sketch is remarkably similar, though she has made an official statement regarding the allegations: “I cannot confirm nor deny that Dr. Seuss influenced my character sketch.”
Well, it looks like we are still having technical difficulties, so let’s move on the next story…
In other news, many objects and corresponding letters are missing from their pages. We have someone heading to the scene now, and we will keep you updated on further developments as it happens.
I write about, with, for, and around kids all day. (Well, maybe I do the dishes too. Sometimes.)
