Review: Twenty-six entertaining tales introduce new characters and concepts, or new twists on the familiar, for each letter of the alphabet. Words make stories, letters make words, and this book takes each letter in altogether new directions with whimsical illustrations and a combination of prose and verse. There's nothing typical or mundane in this look at the alphabet.
