All Around the Block:

An Alphabet

Hardcover sale price: $9.95 (Regularly $16.95)

The alphabet letters are loose! Tired of being just one side on a square alphabet block, each letter takes charge of covering, carving, painting, and manipulating the surface of the block in a variety of inventive and unexpected ways.

A Folded strip of Film follows sandy Footprints past a Friend’s cowrie shell while a quartet of Jaunty Jacks squares up to form a miniature house of cards. Each page offers up its own intriguing and challenging little world. This is an imaginative ABC book that adults will love sharing with children—and vice versa.
