The Wonderful O

The Wonderful O - James Thurber

An odd little story full of wordplay.

What happens when the letter O is banned?  Chas! Cnfusin!

Much of the text has a singsong quality--but not all of it. A little uneven. I would actually love to see this performed on stage. It could make a great high school performance, as it would be quite short and the wordplay would be very fun.
