Mrs. May, the teacher, tells Master Jet that he has not written out the alphabet properly. Jet is sure that he has written it but that is the day A ran away. B is sad and she did not stay. C wanted to play and left as well. The Day That A Ran Away by B.C.R. Fegan is an entertaining story that teaches children the letters of the alphabet in a fun way that makes learning interesting and engaging. The story explains what the rest of the alphabet did when A ran away. Master Jet is upset that all the letters are going away but his teacher consoles him by saying they will pay for their crimes. She asks him to write them down twenty times.

The author’s idea of teaching the alphabet to small children is refreshing and unique and that makes the book captivating to young readers. Children learn not only the alphabet through this book, but they are also taken on an adventure with the alphabet where they learn new things. Master Jet has not done his homework and he tells the teacher that it is not his fault that they had other plans. I like the way the teacher asks Jet to punish the letters for running away by writing them down twenty times. The illustrations by Lenny Wen gives good pace and movement to the story and I like the way the author and the illustrator have given each letter a personality of their own. It is a good bedtime storybook and can be used for interactive sessions in classrooms because it makes learning fun and easy.
