When the letter M comes upon a hungry little mouse with a delicious-looking cherry, he can't help but ask for a bite. The mouse reluctantly agrees, only for the M to devour the entire thing! In exchange, the M offers the mouse some of itself, but after a few bites the M has suddenly become an N. So begins the mouse's journey through the many letters of the alphabet thanks to some creative nibbling and imaginative illustrations from debut author/illustrator Zebo Ludvicek.

Zebo happily resides in not-so-sunny Florida with her always sunny husband, Sam, and their two dogs, Bean and three-legged Mouse.

Horn Book Review

May I have a bite?" asks the letter M in the word "May." A mouse shares its cherry, and M finds the flavor so divine that it rotates 180 degrees, becoming the W in "Wonderful!" The letter continues to morph along with the full-of-surprises story, and a mouse-letter friendship blossoms. The digital art is off-puttingly slick but gets the job done. (c) Copyright 2018.
