817f9UengnLThere have been many alphabet books written, but none quite like this.  In Once Upon an Alphabet, Oliver Jeffers gives every letter it's due by writing each a short story.  His usual wit and humor are present, and so are some characters from his earlier books.  While each letter has its own story, references to previous letters are made later in the alphabet, which only elevates the story as a whole.  The illustrations are deceptively simple with delicate splashes of color and add a perfect amount of playfulness to the text.  Think you know your ABCs?  Not like this!
