Alphabet Mystery is the companion book to Alphabet Adventure, my last collaboration with my son, Bruce Wood. I am seldom inspired to write a sequel to one of my stories, but in this case I had no choice.
In the first book, Alphabet Adventure, the "little letters" worked together to create their first word. I kept wondering what it would be like if, with the help of a couple of capital letters, they created a sentence. But what would their first sentence be? The first sentence that my son wrote was on a birthday card to me. I recalled the emotional impact of that card when he simply wrote, " I love you mom," and then added some circles for hugs, and a few x's for kisses. That's where the idea began.
