LoveReading View on An Alphabet

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

Oliver Jeffers has won numerous awards and delighted millions of kids and parents alike with his beautifully hand illustrated stories.  Jeffers's picture books are wonderfully accessible.

The first three - the "boy books" - feature a small boy who sets off on a series of daunting quests. How to Catch a Star (2004), the first of them, was inspired by a Brer Rabbit story he read as a child. In Lost and Found (2005) ...
