really liked it
Read in February, 2012

This unique "alphabet" book was clever and fun to read. The black-and-white (pencil) drawn illustrations are impressing, mostly because of their ability to convey texture, depth, and fine detail. Chris Van Allsburg include an illustration of each single letter of the alphabet (in 26 "acts") undergoing some type of strange change on a page. Following this page is a short explanation on the next page about the previously shown letter (such as: "The F was firmly flattened"). The alliteration, the illustrations, and the fact that kids (and adults) get to use their imaginations before turning the page makes this book a fun and educational choice. This adds a whole new twist on alphabet books!
