Once Upon an Alphabet: Short Stories for All the Letters by Oliver Jeffers
Silly, wacky, and delightful, Jeffers’ latest masterpiece will invite readers to create their own short stories for each letter of the alphabet (or at least their favorites). And what unique stories they are! Hard to pick a favorite, but I’m fond of the Astronaut who is afraid of heights, or the decidedly scientific short story: “Mary is made of matter….she got sucked through a microscope and became the size of a molecule.” I also appreciate the puzzled parsnip, and of course Victor the Vanquished. All the stories are humorously illustrated with Jeffers special wit and wisdom. We predict it’s destined to be a classic. . .and for the whole family.
We hope this has whet your appetite for other delicious alphabet books. We have some terrific recommendations for you:
