Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every family needs an alphabet book. That's a given. Nat Iwata has been doing steampunk art for several years in the video game industry, and now he has illustrated a visually compelling, fun-for-all-ages Steampunk Alphabet book that is approachable both to fans and those unfamiliar with Steampunk. In light of that, while all of the illustrations are total Steampunk, the opening 'letter sentence' for each page is a familiar word. For example "A is for Apple." The idea of taking everyday ordinary things and reimagining them as Steampunk is sure to be a crowd pleaser, and especially appeal to all of the hipster parents. The second part of each page is a description of the object as set in the Steampunk world. This portion will be more enjoyable to older kids and adults to enjoy, while the book could be read entirely with just the 'letter sentences' for younger readers.

Review:

"'A' is still for apple in Iwata's first children's book (which began life on Kickstarter), but his is 'an apple-shaped music box made to revere/ the Capital's founding of two hundred years.' A wood-and-brass apple appears opposite, complete with a keyhole and gears, and 25 alphabetical eccentricities follow, from a steam-powered candle with an light bulb to an mechanical fish outfitted with 'surveillance devices.' Sidebars in a handwritten font share additional details about the history and workings of Iwata's imagined mechanisms, which will pique imaginations young and old, along with his lovingly detailed images. Ages 2 — 6. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
