Reviews

"With many alphabet books in circulation, it takes originality and creativity to make another A, B, C book stand out; finding a book like The Little i Who Lost His Dot is like finding the sweet blueberry in the mix of the bland"
--Tulsa Book Review


"As the title indicates, a missing dot becomes the device for a whimsical alphabetic romp. It's the last day of Alphabet School, and Little i hops out of bed to join his friends. But something is amiss. 'Little g gasped, Little p pointed, and Little s stared.' They ask, 'Where is your dot?' Little i hadn't noticed it was missing! All of the letters offer to help find it, bringing him vaguely dotlike objects and using verbs that correspond with their names. 'Little b burst forward with a balloon, ' and 'Little d dashed over with a donut.' Little i is offered variously an egg, a gumball, a kiwi, an oyster shell, and more. Cartoonish illustrations present simple letter shapes with pipestem arms and legs, dots for eyes, and small lines for eyebrows and mouths to lend them character; they are a colorful bunch, popping against the mostly white background. While the conceit allows for fairly graceful treatment of Q ("Little q questioned, 'How about this quarter?'") and Z ('Little z, always last, zoomed over with a zero'), all Little x has to offer is a 'xylophone mallet.' The ending is a clever solution with a twist: Little i left his dot on his pillow--but Capital I, his father, thinks maybe he's big enough to do without anyway. Kids will giggle in delight as they make their own suggestions for dot replacements. (Picture book. 4-8)"
