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 pangram, * "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 both 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.
*pangram: a sentence or phrase that includes all the letters of the
"From the Trade Paperback edition."
