To see excerpts from the Missing Letters book itself, visit the Excerpts and Info page, with beautiful illustrations by Leon Thomas. Lesson materials to help students engage in word play and build their phonemic awareness and spelling skills are on the lessons page.
What’s below are draft sketches by Leon that didn’t make it into the book as well as some drawings by Samuel Otten (admittedly a writer, not an artist) and submissions by fans of the book. If you think of a missing letter word pair, you’re welcome to put it in the Replies/Comments at the bottom of this page or submit to the Missing Letters Contest.
