From the back cover:
"When Little i’s dot falls offand rolls away, Little i leaves the alphabet and sets out on a journey to find it.
Little i’s adventure is epic, and stormy, and twisty, and spine-chilling, and surprising.
Are you ready?"
Little i doesn't know it but Little i is about to have an epic adventure. You know how Little i has a dot flying on top of it? Well, one day that dot tumbled off and rolled away and disappeared into the sea. Part of Little i was gone.
Little i went searching for that important dot. Little i searched high and low, far and wide, trying to find the dot and put it back in its spot. It turned out to be a journey of exciting discoveries and like many epic journeys do, this one ends with a fabulous treasure.
Astonishing creativity that comes so easily to Michael Hall leaps from every page as we meet letter who speak up out of their words, we see shapes and colors that gleam mysteriously.
It's pretty incredible how something so seemingly simple shows up to be an amazing nudge to awaken our curiosity on so many levels. Great way to teach the power of an individual letter and the wonder that is all around you and in you.
