Children's Book of the Year in the Junior Design Awards 2014 A wonderfully unusual alphabet book which runs backwards! Vibrant illustrations from the very talented Jim Medway and amusing verses will capture the imagination of every child - and adult! - that reads it.

Truly original in style and look, this funny and lovely book will delight parents and young children alike. An ideal gift for those about to take their first steps on the long road to literacy. An alphabet book with a difference!

The Land of the Frontiebacks A Curious Alphabet of Confused Creatures by Cecil Brasher, Jim Medway

The Land of the Frontiebacks is a strange and wonderful place. The letters of the alphabet run backwards and the animals are rather confused. Starting with Z, 26 quirky verses and illustrations bring to life a menagerie of curious creatures: the imaginary Xolf, the lazy Fox (who never leaves home), the oversized Ant, the Elephant with small ears, the muscly butterfly and the Llama who hates heights.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
