Being a collector of alphabet books, and an admirer of Neil Gaiman, how could I resist this combination? And some of the letters are quite well done--"G is for Good, as in hero, and and Morning;"--but as a whole the creation is too contrived, the story too silly, the "cleverness" just a bit too clever. The illustrations are Tim Burton-esque, and the "plot" ever so Lemony Snickett. It had such potential!
