In Ella Minnow Pea: A Novel in Letters, Ella lives on the fictional island of Nollop off the coast of South Carolina. The island was named after Nevin Nollop, author of the pangram (a sentence or phrase that includes all letters of the alphabet). "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog." All is well in the land of Nollop until the letters on the pangram memorial statue begin falling off. Totalitarianism takes over as the island council decides to ban the usage of each letter that falls. Each letter that the council bans also disappears from the book and the reader is left to decipher the hilarious phonetic spelling of the townspeople. It's up to Ella Minnow Pea to outwit the council and save the alphabet before it disappears from their lives forever.
