Publisher Description

A hilarious and moving story of one girl’s fight for freedom of expression, as well as a linguistic tour de force sure to delight word lovers everywhere

Ella Minnow Pea is a girl living happily on the fictional island of Nollop off the coast of South Carolina. Nollop was named after Nevin Nollop, author of the immortal phrase containing all the letters of the alphabet, “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.”

Now Ella finds herself acting to save her friends, family, and fellow citizens from the encroaching totalitarianism of the island’s Council, which has banned the use of certain letters of the alphabet as they fall from a memorial statue of Nevin Nollop. As the letters progressively drop from the statue they also disappear from the novel. The result is "a love letter to alphabetarians and logomaniacs everywhere" (Myla Goldberg, bestselling author of Bee Season).

Ella Minnow Pea-A must-read?

This book, not extremely long, not extremely difficult, is worth succumbing your time to. It contains a unique element that not many books can relate to- it slowly removes letters from it. In the dystopian setting, you realize that the people of Nollopton do not appreciate what is happening to their country. As this happens, well, you’ll just have to read the book to find out!
