School Library Journal - 05/01/2017 K-Gr 2—What happens when the letters of the alphabet get into an argument? Many of our favorite words cannot be spelled! This is a funny and charming book about a set of alphabet refrigerator magnets gathering to tell a story. Unfortunately, when it comes to picking the characters, C and K cannot agree on whether the tale should feature a cat or a kitten. The argument progresses, and K becomes quite miffed at all of the "cool" K-sounding words that are spelled with a C. Because of the spat, C and K refuse to stand together, so words such as socks, rocket, and luck cannot be spelled. Then N shows K that he is just as special and needed as C by spelling such wonderful words as knight and knitting. C and K resolve their differences and mend their friendship. Wonderfully entertaining, Rash's illustrations enhance the text. The letters' expressions will have kids giggling with delight. VERDICT This unique, hilarious selection will have readers of all ages laughing out loud. Be prepared for it to be in high demand after one read-aloud.—Jasmine L.
