Soundtrack Sunday: Ella Minnow Pea

Following the lead of alita.reads I’ve decided to choose a song I would pick as a soundtrack to a book.

Book: Ella Minnow Pea

Author: Mark Dunn

One Sentence Summary: On the fictional island of Nollop, Ella Minnow Pea and her friends have to adjust their speaking and writing when the High Council begins to ban words that fall from the statue of the island’s namesake, Nevin Nollop, the man who wrote the sentence “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.”

Soundtrack Song: Wordplay by Jason Mraz

Why I chose this song: This book is most definitely all about the wordplay. Not being able to use certain letters made the residents of Nollop very clever and creative with the words they chose to use. I actually couldn’t stop singing this song in my head the entire time I read this book! Anyone who enjoys words and clever ways they can be used will love this book and this song!

Enjoy!

*Unfortunately the original Jason Mraz video wouldn’t play, so I put in the best video I could find…this one shows the lyrics.
