Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The urban landscape will never look the same again. As Stephen T. Johnson demonstrates in a series of strikingly realistic pastels and watercolors, a simple sawhorse can contain the letter "A"--while lampposts alongside a highway can form a row of elegant, soaring Ys. A 1996 Caldecott Honor book, this sophisticated, wordless alphabet book is sure to appeal to young and old alike.

Synopsis:

Through realistic pastels and watercolors, Johnson proposes a new look at the urban landscape, pointing out how letters appear in a variety of places, from interstates to a simple sawhorse at a construction site. A 1996 Caldecott Honor book.
