The World of Letters (A Tale of Jealousy) by C.C. Strachan is a Christian fiction novel. This is a book that would appeal most to a mixed audience of children, young adults, and parents who enjoy stories that teach life lessons. This book takes place in a virtual world known as AbbaLand where the twenty-six letters of the alphabet live together. However not all is well in AbbaLand as jealousy grows in the heart of A as I has become the most popular letter due to invention of the apple devices that all begin with the letter I. A wishes to become the most used letter in the alphabet instead of the third most used letter; his dream becomes jealousy and he despises I for his humble nature. A hatches a plot with E to get rid of I so that A can take I’s place. However, along the way the two letters begin to learn and understand the importance of each letter, the value of friendships, and the importance of humility.
I have to say that I have never read a book like The World of Letters (A Tale of Jealousy) by C.C. Strachan before. This book was very unique in the way C.C. Strachan made the letters of the alphabet into real characters with their very own world. The language was well chosen for the targeted audience and the author did a good job in avoiding words that are difficult to pronounce or sound out. The personality of each letter was clearly and carefully constructed, each having their own wants, likes, and dislikes. As an elementary school counselor, I feel this would be a great book for the children at my school because it teaches important life lessons while also having an entertaining and engaging story.
