This book is one of my favorite books of all time. The pictures are beautiful beyond words. The alliteration is enchanting. The challenge to find pictures that start with the sound of each letter is fantastic. My only concern is that on the letter "K", they have a picture of guns and a kidnapping scenario. In most American schools, it's against the rules to play "guns". So, it may confuse children when they see it in a book at school.

This a beautiful book as all of Graeme Base's books are. A must for inquisitive arty children, plus its great for the adults as well.

Every child to whom I've given this book or with whom I've shared my copy has loved it. The artistry is amazing and gorgeous, and the words are fun as well. Can't recommend it enough.
