There are lots of silly puns that will have you laughing as well.

    I have got a fun, super adorable book to read. The Upper Case is a quick, laugh out loud read where alphabets, exclamations, quotations live together. The conversations between them are charming and, I didn't want the book to end. The illustrations were mind-blowing and, perfect. I would recommend the book to children and all young minds.

    I have not included any exclamation in this post. Find out why by reading the book.

    "Luckily the Quotation Twins were willing were willing to talk. 'Yeah, something's definitely up, besides us,' they said. 'But don't quote us on that.'"

    I love all of Tara Lazar's quirky, clever books. This book is the perfect companion to 7 ate 9. The story is fast paced, and every spread has multiple puns, idioms, and witty wordplay. The film noir illustrations enhance the already super fun storyline. This is the kind of story that you'll want to re-read for a rollicking ride and a chuckl

    I run on puns. You guys know it, even my bio on Instagram says so. So you can bet your bucks I enjoyed this short but pun-ny book very much. In this one, the Capital letters go missing, and detective 'I' is charged with solving the mystery. Intended for children, this book is a good start for early reading.

    This has to be one of the most coolest ways that educates kids on their letters while having a mystery to solve while reading it!

    It was a short read but totally educational for kids to learn with a hilarious story-line to boot! The Illustrations in this book are spot on and totally make this book what it is!

    Thank You to Tara Lazar for this short read that totally put a smile on my face!!

    I was delighted when I was selected for the blog tour for this book and then I also received a ecopy of the book. I couldn't wait to start reading and here we are now. I was in the mood for a punny word detective book and this one seemed perfect.

    Meet Private I (yes, really), he just finished a case is kind of looking forward to having some quiet and rest.. but he won't have that for long as quite soon Mark, the question mark, bursts into the office to tell our Private I that he is the only one left as an uppercase letter. OH NO! That this can happen in Capital City, chaos will happen so it is up to Private I to get to the case and find out the hints.

    We see him wander through the city, meet up with various characters, for instance ampersand and her twins q and p, and did you see hyphen jogging around? And then he gets his first clue which leads him to more delightful characters and eventually he solves the case. How, I am not going to be telling you, you will just have to read, but it was such a delight. I definitely hadn't expected that character to be the culprit. We learn why they did what they did, and I could definitely understand why they did what they did given the character they are.

    All in all, this will surely delight kids. They can learn about the alphabet, about numbers, about punctuation and more. There are tons of puns related to all of this and I am sure that they will laugh themselves silly. Just like I did.

    The art was also pretty fun, it was a nice style.

    I had tons of fun reading this book and I would highly recommend this one to everyone. I can't wait to see what other cases Private I will have and what kind of things will happen next in this city.

    Punctuation! A fun way for kids to learn. I think this book would appeal to older kids who read picture books as there are double entendres. Parents and caregivers will delight in this playful book as well.

However, Private I has a hard time believing him since this is Capital City. As Private I is the last letter standing, he will have to solve the mystery before it's too late.

    The book was a fun laugh out read. The cute book made learning fun with witty jokes and silly puns. An adorable read for any you

    All of the Upper Case Letters are missing from Alphabet City and I is chosen to help. After careful searching and a LOT of questioning, he finds them hanging onto a marquee where they had been placed by Exclamation point who felt like he was over worked???? Anyhooo...idea is fun but way too complicated. Who would we give this too? Teachers? Five year olds learning to read?
