Operation Alphabet is the story of a little boy called Charlie Foxtrot. This entertaining and delightfully illustrated caper is an ideal way to introduce young children to the wonder of words and the magic of reading.

Charlie has just started school and finds learning the alphabet strange and confusing. Luckily, Charlie’s struggles are spotted by two agents from the top secret Ministry of Letters, who summon the Special Alphabet Service (SAS) to the rescue. Boarding trains, dodging hungry cats, and personally escorted by a dashing Duchess, the 26 letters of the Special Alphabet Service embark on a thrilling adventure to find Charlie, teach him the alphabet and open his mind to a love of letters and stories.

Beautifully packaged this is a sturdy hardback that will delight children and their parents time and time again.

Synopsis

Operation Alphabet by Al MacCuish, Jim Bletsas

You are about to enter a secret world. Not many people know this, but inside an ordinary post box in London, next to Big Ben, there exists a top secret government department.

This is the mysterious Ministry of Letters, the place where all the words in the world are made. Believe it or not, every single word you’ll ever read – even these – started life inside this not-so-ordinary post box. But remember. This story is highly classified. You can keep a secret, can’t you?
