IMG_0719

If you think it is just another ABC book, you are up for a surprise. After all, it is written by the world’s favorite storyteller. If Oliver Jeffers is the author, it must be a book with a unique story. Or 26 masterful stories. One for each letter.

From a story about Edmund, the astronaut who wanted to explore space but was afraid of heights, to a story about a cup who had a fatal dream of leaving the cupboard a little tale about Hellen living in half a house, until she woke up on the wrong side of bed, Jemima and her jelly door, or an owl who just kept moving onward, the readers are up for something unpredictable, hilarious and totally ingenious, letter by letter. And then add to it Jeffers’s inimitable, minimalist and humorous pictures! “Once upon an Alphabet” is definitely a  reading treat for the little readers (and their parents alike).
