The Alekizou is a mischievous creature. Join him and his friend the Wise Owl on a rollicking adventure to the library where they unexpectedly learn how important vowels are. Since he can’t read, The Alekizou gobbles up those tasty vowels, ruining the books and making it impossible to speak. Find out how The Alekizou enlists the help of children and American Sign Language to fix the big mess he has made. Celebrating literacy and libraries, The Alekizou makes being a book worm cool.

About the Author

Nancy Turgeon majored in creative writing and co-founded her own ad agency at age 27. Seeds for The Alekizou were sown by her second grade teacher, who challenged the class to find words without vowels. In addition to writing delightful children’s books, she has her own puppet theater and more than 100 puppets! Over the past 35 years, DC-area illustrator Patricia Raine occasionally takes a recess from the complex, grown-up world of political caricature and visual editorial commentary to create richly imagined paintings for the infinitely sweeter and simpler world of children.
