Q and U Call It Quits

Written by Stef Wade

Illustrated by Jorge Martin

Q and U Call It Quits Synopsis

For fans of Z Is for Moose and Little i, this hilarious and quirky story about friendship and the alphabet will make young readers excited about letter learning. What happens when best friends Q and U quarrel? It's a real quandary, since they have always been quality friends-a true squad. But sometimes, U wants some time to herself-even though Q is lonely because he doesn't always fit in with the other letters without her. When the rest of the alphabet notices the split, they decide they want to do the same. And utter chaos ensues! Can Q and U come together to quell the mayhem and help the letters repair their friendships?

An amusing and applicable story. -- Kirkus Reviews
