RGRC Book #72 - Ella Minnow Pea

"Love one another, push the perimeter of this glorious language. Lastly, please show proper courtesy; open not your neighbor's mail."
― Mark Dunn, Ella Minnow Pea

Review copied from Goodreads:

This book was OK. Kind of cute, actually. It's about a fictional island nation where a statue is erected to the man who is credited with inventing the sentence "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog." As the glue that holds the letters of the sentence to the statue begins to loosen, tiles begin to fall off and break. As they do, the island high council bans their use, until only LMNOP remain. The story is told in a series of letters passed back and forth between characters. It is funny to watch the letters fall out of the novel, though it does get a little difficult to read (understandably) at a point. Three stars.
