What would you do if a bunch of letters jumped right off the page while you were reading a book? Run after them, of course. Join Sue MacDonald as she travels from a railroad station to a sewer to a mountain peak and more, all in an attempt to capture her renegade vowels. Reading a book has never been so interactive!

Jim Tobin’s clever text—based on a favorite children’s song—is perfectly coupled with Dave Coverly’s winning illustrations. Get ready for a madcap adventure starring five very important letters.

Praise for Sue MacDonald Had a Book

“The ink-and-watercolor pictures will hook kids with the adventure scenarios, the warm feelings, and the simple, chanting text, which includes a question-answer refrain. An obvious choice for classroom sharing, this will make an energetic read-aloud in any setting.”—Booklist
 
"The cartoony illustrations and smart verse make for an engaging read-aloud—or sing-along."—Publishers Weekly
 
“This lively grammar-related adventure is a sing-along…done in vivid colors, the ink-and-watercolor illustrations feature high-energy cartoon figures…This educational romp…is a strong choice for classroom and library collections.”—School Library Journal
