Once Upon an Alphabet

Publisher: HarperCollins Children's Books

In this his latest offering, Oliver Jeffers presents his own original and imaginative spin on the traditional ABC book, bringing the alphabet vividly to life.

Turn the pages of this large format book to discover 26 (very) short stories, which introduce us to a host of new characters - from dynamic duo Owl and Octopus, to Edmund the astronaut with his awkward fear of heights. Fans of Jeffers's previous books will enjoy finding a few familiar faces to spot as well!

Gloriously-illustrated in Jeffers's distinctive style, it's easy to see why this book was selected as Children's Books Ireland's Book of the Year. A gorgeously-presented picture book that will delight children and parents alike.
