Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hold on to your hats with this alphabet misadventure! Enter the colourful world of Dianna Bonder, where coughing camels, lazy llamas, and rowdy rooster all muddle their way through the letters of the alphabet. From Auntie Augusta's apple allspice pie to the zebra with a zipper, you can join the delightful animal and human characters, including a toad with a tepid cup of tea, complete with a pinch of flea. Find out what happens when an inquisitive goat finds his way into Granny's jumping bean garden. And all the while, keep your eyes peeled for the hidden letter cleverly disguised in each illustration. Children and adults alike will be captivated by the tongue-twisting rhymes and amusing alliterations that accompany the images. And with each illustration bursting with detail in this renaissance-inspired title, this book is as much a feast for the eyes as it is for the ears.

Synopsis:

Come Along on A Ride through the 26 letters of the Accidental Alphabet. Twisting and turning from A to Z, find out what happens when a camel won't stop coughing or a mockingbird mocks one too many monkeys. It's an adventure you'll never forget, with a cast of accident-prone characters. Enter a world where camels catch colds, kings cavort with kittens, and toads drink tepid tea. Ulf's ugly, uneven and unfit underwear will captivate your imagination and tickle your funny bone. Each letter is a visual wonder replete with rich, imaginative detail. Children and parents alike will delight in the tongue-twisting rhymes that accompany each picture. And with a hidden letter cleverly concealed in each illustration, this whimsical alphabet is as much a feast for the eyes as it is for the ears.
