Did you take the B from my _ook?

Beck and Matt Stanton
ABC Books
ISBN: 9780733334832
RRP: 19.99

Want to make adults look silly? This is the book you need. After practising a few words the reader sneezes – only to scatter the B/bs in all the words. Everything begins to sound strange; hilarity builds on the non-sounds of missing Bs. There may be a plot here but there certainly is no story! After the entertainment is finished children have learned that words need their letters and in the right places – and start to make up their own missing letter games.
