Each letter of the alphabet is represented by a sentence using words beginning with that letter, which is illustrated by a fanciful drawing.
This is a super fun book for both kids and their parents or grandparents. The artwork is fantastic and the author/artist gets silly with each letter – Terri the tall thin tan tiger, talks with three tiny toads by their toy truck.
All that aside Don is one of my all-time favorite artists. He is multi-talented; painting and playing Dixieland Jazz. He has paintings hanging in a children’s hospital, in the collections of well known personages and I even have 1 or 2 prints signed by him.
I met Don at a local crafts fair many years ago. I was drawn to the sound of his clarinet and stayed for his artwork. I couldn’t afford his paintings or even his prints at that time but I could afford his calendar.
I have collected them ever since and just got my hands on next years.
