Once Upon an Alphabet
In Once Upon an Alphabet, #1 New York Times bestseller Oliver Jeffers has created a stunning collection of words and artwork that is a storybook, alphabet book, and gorgeously designed art book all in one.
The most inventive and irresistible book of the year spans a mere 26 letters (don't they all!) and 112 pages. From an Astronaut who's afraid of heights to a Bridge that ends up burned between friends, to a Cup stuck in a cupboard and longing for freedom, Once Upon an Alphabet is a creative tour de force from A through Z. Slyly funny in a way kids can't resist, and gorgeously illustrated in a way readers of all ages will pour over, this series of interconnected stories and characters explores the alphabet in a way that will forever raise the bar.

Great book! Each letter has its own story and plenty of alliteration throughout making it fun for readers of all levels. Easy, silly stories about each letter make it great to read in small bits or all the way through! -Karen, mother of three, ages 7, 5 and 2.5, Lemoore, CA
