About the Book

A charming, suspenseful, and wholly original picture book about the adventure of growing up, from the acclaimed and bestselling creator of Red: A Crayon’s Story and Wonderfall.

When Little i’s dot falls off, rolls down a hill, over a cliff, and into the sea, Little i sets out on a journey to rescue it.

With a playful focus on the alphabet, spelling, and simple punctuation, this charming and suspenseful quest story about letters, self-confidence, belonging, and growing up is a great choice for the classroom, library story-hours, and bedtime.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“A wonderfully clever and ultimately triumphant journey of self-discovery...The art, like the text, is bold, simple, and engaging. Brightly colored textured collaged paper makes for the perfect technique to deliver this high-concept tale. Little i may be a mere cutout letter, but his humanity shines through.” - New York Times Book Review

“A playful exploration of language and punctuation with expressive alphabet characters, an exciting journey, and a triumphant ending. ...An inventive and well-executed story and design make this an excellent choice for young storytimes and a strong selection for most collections.” - School Library Journal

“This lighthearted adventure starring the lowercase i portrays the letters of the alphabet with human characteristics. ...The brief text and uncomplicated plot make this manageable for those just learning the alphabet, while the sly humor will appeal to those a bit older. ...awesome!” - Booklist

“A quest story and a concept book...Bright digitally compiled collages composed of painted and cut paper create dramatic backgrounds, and the expressions of and movement among the letters give them energy and personality. ...symbols and letters in the English language beautifully become part of the story’s action.” - Horn Book Magazine
