Billed as "A little book of alliteration," this handy 5x6-size hardcover challenges the reader to compose some alliterative sentences--that is, those in which most words begin with the same letter or sound. Examples of such sentences are provided throughout the book, one starting with each letter of the alphabet. All 26 letters, A thru Z, are formed with colorful illustrations of circus performers, giving the book a lively, whimsical look. (Author: Marti Veto; Illustrator: Jason Lindblad; ISBN: 1-7352641-0-5.

MARTI VETO is a language-loving lady born with her tongue-in-cheek. A proud Kentuckian by birth, she retired in 2007 from a life-changing corporate career and moved from San Francisco to Nashville to try her hand at taking herself much less seriously.
A strong believer in the law of attraction and the power of positive thinking, her personal story is about loving the life you are living. In 2013 the stars aligned as intended, and Marti called in "The One." She is writing what she hopes to be a bestseller, based on life lessons learned while Waiting for Tom.
Send in the Nouns is her first published work. Though the sentiments in the text are expressed playfully, they are intended to encourage the reader toward a happier and more fulfilling life.
