Once upon an alphabet by oliver jeffers is an engaging, charming and wonderfully funny book that kids (and parents) will love. The humour is fun and unique, with just a touch of the bizzare, and it’s a fantastic way to introduce kids to different words as they learn their alphabet. From edmund the astronaut who is afraid of heights (but is working on it) to the enigma of the elephants and the envelope, to the somewhat unfortunate fate of helen who lived in half a house (and rolled out of bed the wrong way), onward to the owl and the octopus, to the puzzled parsnip, robots who steal rainclouds (because of the rust) to the yeti who bought a yo-yo from a yak…there’s something for everyone in this wonderful book. once upon an alphabet features fantastic stories for every letter of the alphabet. With charming illustrations, thrilling stories and endless entertainment, once upon an alphabet is a great gift that kids will love.
