Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2017

From the publisher A battle of the magnet letters ensues across the refrigerator door in May I Have a Word when C and K get into a fight about who gets to start the cooler (kooler?) words. When the two letters storm off in opposite directions, everything is turned upside down. SOCKS are now SO, there aren’t any CLOCKS to TICK or TOCK, and the world is just out of LUCK–until other letters work to bring C and K back together again.
