The book features anthropomorphized letters. The lowercase letters climb a coconut tree in alphabetical order, until their weight causes the tree to bend so much, causing them to all fall out of the tree. Capital letters the older relatives of the letters climbing the tree come to help them. Again alphabetically, it describes each letter's injury. At night, letter A comes back and climbs up the coconut tree, daring the other letters to catch him. An audio book version is also available, narrated by Ray Charles. It inspired a sequel, Chicka, Chicka, 1, 2, 3. A board book for toddlers, entitled Chicka, Chicka ABC was published in , containing the first half of the full story, which ends up with all 26 letters falling out of the tree. Weston Woods made an animated musical short film adaptation of the original book, with music composed and performed by Crystal Taliefero.
