Nancy Turgeon’s vivid imagination started early--favorite dolls were named Dorbitis and Dorbano. She majored in Creative Writing at Ohio Wesleyan University, co-founding her own ad agency at age 27. Seeds for The Alekizou were sown by her second grade teacher who challenged the class to find words without any vowels. Now retired following a long, star-studded career in advertising, Turgeon continues to nurture her creative side. In addition to writing children’s books, she has her own puppet theater and more than 100 puppets!
The Alekizou is a mischievous creature. Find out what happens when he gobbles up the vowels from all the books in the library. Then help him fix the terrible mess using just your fingers! An inspirational literacy adventure that Dr. Seuss himself would enjoy.
