Some of the seascapes are wondrous fantastical, but this still feels a little bit focus-grouped. ( )

Reaction: The text is imaginative and rhythmic, yet it also vividly and accurately describes the Pacific Ocean. “Despite the damp drizzle I do enjoy roaming down by the dock where I do my beachcombing,” describes how enjoyable beachcombing is even if it is raining, a common weather occurrence in the Pacific Coastal region.

Beautiful pictures use people and things found along the Pacific Coast of North America to take you through the alphabet. Beautiful illustrations, whimsical, as a child searches for F..airies and only finds F...rogs. Introduces information in a very charming way.

Excellent alphabet book in the mould of Animalia, without the mind-melting level of detail and charm of that masterpiece but with a whimsical West-coast bent. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 155285521X, Paperback)

From the top of Alaska to the tip of Mexico, the Pacific Coast of North America comes to life in this vividly illustrated alphabet book. From albatrosses and orcas to Zodiac boats, children can identify objects that start with each letter and read along with the lilting text. In addition, each illustration has the featured letter hidden within the colorful artwork, creating a challenge for older readers, too. Featuring forests full of fairies, singing seashells, and persnickety pirates, this is an alphabet adventure for the young and young at heart.
