The Wonderful O - James Thurber

What an amazing book! It's a short book and is illustrated, which makes me think it's possibly a kids' book, but it's a real jewel - the writing is done in a subtly poetic style in places that makes it a joy to read. There are also some humorous moments that depend on the way words look, which was delightful too. This has been on my TBR pile (but wasn't officially on my TBR Pile challenge list), and it was a $1.00 book from the perpetual Library Sale (it's a hardback with a copyright date of 1957 that seems brand new). A quick little read with a great story and just a gem. Highly recommended!
