William Joyce: The Numberlys

The Numberlys by William Joyce

Once upon a time there was no alphabet, only numbers…

Then The Numberlys started putting some numbers together. Removing a piece here. Adding a piece there. At first, it was awful. But the five kept at it, and soon it was…artful! One letter after another emerged, until there were twenty-six - and they were beautiful.

And when the letters entered the world, something truly wondrous began to happen…Pizza! Jelly beans! Color! Books!
