Once Upon An Alphabet Book Review
I have read many books by Oliver Jeffers. His words and illustrations crossover all age ranges. In this book of what I would term “very” short stories, it was the combination of the characters, predicaments and art that made me want to write and share this review.
My personal favorite stories are about:
B: Bernard, Bob and the Bridge
D: Danger Delilah
J: Jemima and the use of Jelly
R: Robots and Rain Clouds
T: The Terrible Typewriter
The last story I noted “The Terrible Typewriter” will resonate with not only readers, but writers as well. It’s a fun mini lesson in being careful of the stories you tell.
While we are on the subject of story telling and writing, I thought the elements used in every story were not only intriguing, but extremely well crafted. The characterization, actions, settings, plots and conflicts were presented through both the art and words.
I hope that you will read this book. If you do, please feel free to share your thoughts in our forum.
