Derek Maroney is an elementary teacher and musician from Vancouver, British Columbia. He loves reading, making music, and creating puns that make people groan. He would like to thank all of the vowels and consonants that helped make this story possible.
Mairi Anderson has always loved making art, reading stories, and playing with words. She currently lives in Vancouver, BC, on unceded Coast Salish territory.
In a world where the Vowels and Consonants live in two separate cities, communication can be tricky. Nobody seems to know how to solve this problem, until a curious Y arrives from a faraway land.
"Why is there a big big wall between the two cities? Why does everyone seem so sad? Why can't they work together?"
He has a lot of questions.
