Here is a fresh and imaginative way to look at the alphabet. Turn to the first page of the book and you'll be greeted by a picture of an arrowhead, surrounded by a simple black frame. Once you lift the frame you'll find the arrowhead is magically transformed into the letter A. And so it goes, from Balloons, Cloud, and Door through Leaf and Mice to Yolk and Zipper. Bold distinctive images and a simple yet ingenious format make this an alphabet book to treasure.
