Did you ever try to use an egg in place of a football? Or dress up a live quail in doll's clothes when you didn't have a doll? Or strap rag-dolls onto your feet in place of slippers? In Alphabetter, twenty-six boys and girls find themselves in twenty-six different predicaments when the alphabet refuses to cooperate with them. In the end, the solution turns out to be right on the next page, if only they can find it

Dan Bar-el believes that the highest compliment a preschool child can pay is to call one silly. He carries the label with honor. Preschool children have no patience for 'jokes, ' he says. Ask one to tell you a knock-knock joke and, painfully, you'll see my point. But nothing gets a giggle like the absurd. Nothing is funnier than turning the rules on their heads. And that is exactly what Dan has done in his new book, in which each of twenty-six children is named for a child he has taught. The author of Things Are Looking Up, Jack and Things Are Looking Grimm, Jill, Dan lives, writes and teaches in Vancouver, BC.

Alphabetter presented Graham Ross with an exciting challenge: creating twenty-six distinct and interesting characters and situations instead of one sustained story. I try to create whimsical, light-hearted illustrations that are a little left of center. Readers will agree that he has accomplished this and more. Graham Ross is also the illustrator of By a Thread by Ned Dickens. He lives in Merrickville, Ontario, and worked on this book in acrylic paint on gessoed watercolor paper with watercolor pencil in collage.
