Brief book review: Ella Minnow Pea

This was a fun little novel! It's set on an island founded by the inventor of the phrase "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog", which is embossed onto tiles in the town square.

As the glue starts to give out under the tiles, the town's council believe it to be a sign, and outlaw use of the letters that fall.

It's an epistolary book, so as more letters are outlawed, the author has to stop using them, down to only 5 by the end!
