Guest Author, Elaine Kaye

Today I have a special guest at my pad:  Author, Elaine Kaye. She's Chrys Fey's mom. Her new book, The Missing Alphabet, just came out. She's here, along with characters, Gregory and Sammy, to tell us about the book.


Gregory the Boy: Hi everyone! My name is Gregory.

Sammy the Teddy Bear: *waves* Don't be scared, but I can talk, too. I'm Sammy.

Gregory: Sammy is my best friend in the whole wide world. We go on a lot of adventures together. Don't we, Sammy?

Sammy: Yup! Like the time when Gregory turned green at school.

Gregory: And you came to tell my friends and me about bullying.

Sammy: Someone had to.

Gregory: Then there was the time when you ripped your leg, Sammy, and Mom had to fix you up.

 Sammy: *rubs leg* I don't want to talk about that.

Gregory: Let's not forget about what happened on Halloween night!

Sammy: We rode on a broom! *pretends to be an airplane*

Gregory: Now we have a brand-new adventure to share with everyone.

Sammy: We do! But maybe we should let Elaine Kaye share the details about the story of The Missing Alphabet.

Elaine Kaye the Author: Thanks, boys!

 NEW RELEASE FROM ELAINE KAYE:



The paper alphabet letters in Gregory Green’s classroom have gone missing, and it’s up to him and his friends to find those missing letters. They go on a hunt through the school, hoping to find them. They spot letters next to things that start with those letters, like B for Bananas in the cafeteria. But will they be able to find the entire alphabet? The Missing Alphabet is a great story for children learning to associate letters with objects, and four activities throughout the book will further help children to get familiar with the alphabet.

  2. I thought it was going to be about an alphabet that we forgot about. Invent some new letters and stuff.

    1. Hi, Powdered Toast Man! It would've been a very interesting picture book if they found a forgotten alphabet made of invented letters. Though not very good for teaching kids about the real alphabet. Ha-ha. Thanks for commenting!

    2. That would be creative. Maybe you should write a book that invents a new alphabet.

  8. Cute books. I miss having little ones around. I spent hours reading to my children and then they spent--and still spend--hours reading to themselves. Several months ago I gave my son Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace. He loved it and is reading it again. I've never read it. It's verrrrry long.

    Love,
    Janie
