D (A Tale of Two Worlds)
“This hilarious fantasy novel is unlike anything I've read (or listened to!) before. A young woman wakes up one morning to find that the letter D doesn't exist anymore, meaning that her own name—Dhikilo—is no longer said correctly. Things including the letter disappear too—Dogs and Donkeys and Dentists, all totally gone! She can't figure out what happened, but soon finds herself on a journey to another realm to save the world, with the help of her old favorite teacher, Professor Dodderfield. This book is unbelievably funny, especially thanks to the narrator on the audiobook, who somehow doesn't stumble over the gibberish created when that letter doesn't appear anymore. Or should I say, "-oesn't appear anymore?" Perfect for Middle Grade and up, this was my favorite audiobook of 2020!”Lindsay, Lark & Owl
“ In this middle-reader novel, Dhikilo awakes one day to find that the letter D has disappeared. She seems to be the only one who notices and is certainly the only one still using D. How can a letter just disappear – and how can nobody else notice? Shortly after this bizarre and discomfiting turn of events, Dhikilo learns of the death of her beloved former teacher Professor Dodderfield. She is determined to attend his funeral, despite her parents’ reservations. Unusual circumstances at the funeral lead to a series of much more unusual events, and a quest to save the D. In a classic tale of good vs. evil reminiscent of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and A Wrinkle in Time, Dhikilo and her companion, Mrs. Robinson, travel to the land of Liminus, now ruled by the evil Gamp. Their wit and bravery serve them well in their encounters with numerous life-threatening obstacles and many interesting beings along the way. Full of adventure and with strong female protagonists, D (A Tale of Two Worlds) brings a message of hope and the value of perseverance. A valuable message for all”Nancy, Raven Book Store
