The Numberlys

William Joyce

Once upon a time there was no alphabet, only numbers. Life was fine - orderly and dull as gray paint. But our five jaunty heroes weren't willing to accept that this was all there could be. They knew there had to be more. So they broke out hard hats and welders, hammers and glue guns, and they started knocking some numbers together. Removing a piece here. Adding a piece there. At first, it was awful. But the five kept at it, and soon, one letter after another emerged until there were 26 amazing letters bringing color, books and pizza into their gray and orderly existence. Ages 4 to 7.
