  1. Debbie Smith

    The Alekizou is a rather odd-looking creature with a bump on his head. While that bump does incredible non-human things, this fellow seems to also have a human side.

    The story, which is told in verse, has more words than most picture books. However, it shouldn’t really matter since it’s aimed at children old enough to have longer attention spans.

    Even though Alekizou’s fine feathered friend, the owl, tries to interest him in learning, he’s not interested. Alekizou is far more interested in fun and games. But that comes with a price. The poor creature can’t write, spell, count, or read.

    Now here’s something interesting. When he spots people, both young and old, coming out of a building carrying armloads of books, he’s not happy. Not happy at all! We humans might say that he is a bit jealous and feeling somewhat lonely.

    And so the library plot begins. Since he can’t read books and has no need for them he will destroy them. That way he won’t feel so lonely. Kids will want to play more and not spend so much time studying and reading.

    That night he quietly makes his way to the library and gobbles up all the vowels from the books. Why only vowels, you ask? Those are the letters that look like tasty beans and gumballs.

    With no vowels in the words, all of the books are fairly worthless. But the bigger problem is the fact that all vowels have disappeared, not just the ones in the books. No one can communicate. A word might sound like “HLDW!” when someone tries to speak.

    What to do? What to do? The Alekizou ends up using American Sign Language and enlisting the help of children. But does that mean everyone now has to communicate using sign language? Or is there a better solution?

    My thanks to City of Light Publishing for a digital copy of this book. My thoughts are my own and posted voluntarily.

    What Concerned Me
    While this is a small concern, I didn’t like the face on Alekizou. He looked a little too scary.

    What I Liked Most
    This is such a fun story to introduce vowels, sign language, teamwork, and more.
    It even shows the local library as a place that makes people happy! Now I ask, how can you go wrong with a book that promotes libraries?

    Alekizou is an unusual looking character with an extraordinary superpower – a bump on his head that can change its shape whenever he wants. He is a fun-loving character and despises reading, learning and going to school. Thus, he can’t read, write or spell. And when he finds kids enjoying the library, that’s when his terrible plot starts running in his head.

    A story for kids who can’t see the importance of learning and those who always choose to look for trouble instead of reading their books and learning. A fun story to enjoy with your kids that focuses on finding solutions to certain problems, teamwork and most importantly, changing yourself for the better – not only for yourself but also for the people around you.
