    Sort of like OULIPO for kids Or would it just be a kind of Perec for kids Or maybe just a warning to kids to stay away from people who discriminate against particular vowels, and try to rid the world or the text of them Pirates attack a small island When they find no treasures the head pirate gets very angry and punishes the island by ridding it of anything that has the letter O in it, the bane of his existence What follows is an attempt by the pirates and their collaborators I just real Sort of like OULIPO for kids Or would it just be a kind of Perec for kids Or maybe just a warning to kids to stay away from ...

    I came across this book looking for something to get my niece Hailey for her birthday The story is reminiscent of Mark Dunn s Ella Minnow Pea A Novel in Letters, which also explores issues of hope, love, valor and freedom Pirates invade the island of Ooroo looking for lost treasure Their leader, the man named Black, loathes the letter O because his mother had suffered a terrible mishap involving a porthole so he outlaws any word containing it which allows Thurber to get away with all sort I came across this book looking for something to get my niece Hailey for her birthday The story is reminiscent of Mark Dunn s Ella Minnow Pea A Novel in Letters, which also explores issues of hope, love, valor and freedom Pirates invade the island of Oor...
