Ella Minnow Peas

Located on an island off the coast of South Carolina, this book is written in letter format. The people of this island decide that grammar is the ultimate law. That is until letters began to fall from a monument dedicated to Nevin Nollop, who coined the phrase “the quick brown dog jumped over the lazy dog.” As each letter falls three times from the monument, the Residents’ Council prohibits that letter and all words containing it. Finally, a journalist arrives and takes action. Along the way, the journalist falls in love with one of the main characters in the fable. Author Mark Dunn does a fascinating job with puns in this book that will leave you trying to steer clear of the best memory foam mattress so you can read the next letter.
