Once upon a time there was no alphabet, only numbers. Life was orderly. Dull as gray paint. Very… numberly. But there were those who weren’t willing to accept that this was all there could be. So they broke out their hard hats and welders, hammers and glue guns, and started knocking some numbers together. Removing a piece here, adding a piece there. Slowly, one letter after another emerged, until there were twenty-six. And they were beautiful. All colorful, shiny, and new. Exactly what our heroes didn’t even know they were missing. Set against a vibrant black-and-white metropolis, the pictures glow ever brighter as the letters emerge. Your young readers will be captivated by this sophisticated yet fun alphabetical origin story, showing them how sometimes just wanting to follow the creative urge can lead to wonderful things. With a bookplates signed by the author and illustrator, William Joyce, laid in. Ages 3-7. 56pp.

William Joyce does a lot of stuff but children’s books are his true bailiwick (The Numberlys, Rolie Polie Olie, Dinosaur Bob, George Shrinks, and the #1 New York Times bestselling The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, which is also his Academy Award–winning short film, to name a few).
