The Lovereading4Kids comment

Shortlisted for the 2009 Norfolk Libraries Children's Book Award and nominated for the 2009 Kate Greenaway Medal.

A wonderful picture book for parents to share with younger and older children alike. It’s unusual in that through the alphabet it introduces a quirky celebration of Britain’s vibrant and unique cultural identity beginning with A is for Arthur and B is for Beatles through K for Kilt and S for Stonehenge to Y is for Yorkshire Pudding and Z is for Zero Degrees Longitude. Wonderfully vibrant illustrations will provide lots to talk and laugh about.

Synopsis
