Buy a book by Oliver Jeffers and you become owner of a complete and perfect work of art. A Little 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.
From Astronaut to Zeppelin, this is no ordinary alphabet.... Boldly colourful, funny and specially adapted from Oliver Jeffers' highly-acclaimed Once Upon an Alphabet, winner of the CBI Book of the Year, this sturdy edition is perfect for younger readers.

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) ...More About Oliver Jeffers
