The Case of the Incapacitated Capitals

Robin Pulver, illus. by Lynn Rowe Reed. Holiday House, $16.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-8234-2402-3
In an era of all-caps Internet posts and no-caps e-mails, Pulver and Reed make the case for correct capitalization. Mr. Wright’s classroom seems to have forgotten how to use capitals, and the letters are falling ill due to lack of use (“[W]riting a letter is not the same as texting,” Mr. Wright tells the kids). Reed’s chunky acrylic paintings feature interjections from capital and lowercase letters alike, and while the underlying story line—which involves Teacher Appreciation Day and Mr. Wright’s embarrassing nickname—is a bit convoluted, Mr. Wright (with help from some instructive back matter) makes the rules of capitalization clear. Ages 4–8. (Sept.)
