Today, I am reading a funny French book called: "22!" by Marie-Aude Murail. In this story, a grand duke and his wife finally have an heir, a little boy named Ivan. In honor of Ivan's birth, a young student writes a tongue-in-cheek poem full of V-words and silly rhymes. The grand duke is incensed and decides to ban any words that contain the letter V! A special police force is formed to spy on the citizens and fine them if they use the forbidden letter. However, what will the grand duke do when Ivan is introduced to the letter V by a friend and ends up loving the sound?
