This informative and engaging picture book illuminates words from a writer’s life from A to Z starting with Alphabet, explaining the history and Greek word alphabetos, ending with Z for Zorro who signed his name with his sword drawn lines, and finishes with P.S. for post scriptum.

“So N? It’s for Notebook,
a writer’s must for sure,
for catching, keeping,
thoughts, ideas, and more.”
