Once Upon an Alphabet: Short Stories for All the Letters by Oliver Jeffers. If every story is made up of words – which are made up of letters – then shouldn’t every letter deserve its own story? In this wonderful alphabet book, Jeffers does just that. He devotes an entire short story to each of the twenty-six letters, A to Z. We begin with an Astronaut who’s been training for Adventure, then meet Bernard and Bob, Battling neighbors separated by a Bridge. There’s also the Enigma of how many Elephants can fit inside and Envelope (you’ll find the answer under N) and still later, there’s Owl and Octopus, searching for problems to solve Out On the Ocean. First we meet an astronaut named Edmund who has been training his whole life to go up in space. And it all comes full circle at the end when the Astronaut purchases a Zeppelin. Here are 26 delightful stories with quirky and fun illustrations that the whole family will adore. Your young readers will be laughing out loud at these fun-filled alphabet-inspired stories that run the gamut from A to Z. Ages  3-8. 112pp.
