The Lovereading4Kids comment
Buy a book by Oliver Jeffers and you become owner of a complete and perfect work of art. An Alphabet is so much more than an alphabet book. Each page features one object, one letter, one word, yet each is a story in itself and will prompt readers to fill in the background to these characters and things, or imagine what is going to happen to them next. Jeffers’s scribbly line fills each with movement – no jelly for example could be wobblier than the one that illustrates J. Characterisation is created through dots for eyes, just a line or blob for a mouth, and this is a triumph of simplicity and sophistication. A book for readers of all and every age. ~ Andrea Reece
