ABOUT THE BOOK

“THE LETTER BANDITS create mischief wherever they go… From city to seaside the rascals manage to escape with any letter they desire, transforming people, animals, and objects as they go.

The unsuspecting DOVE becomes a DOE as a Letter Bandit runs off with the letter V, and the FAUNA IN THE SAUNA becomes FUN IN THE SUN as the letter A disappears.

Will this mischief go unchecked, or will the LETTER BANDITS meet their match?”
