What a wonderful way to turn letters into images. Almost Chinese in its approach to association of the character/letter to an actual thing that it represents. Some of the graphics and colors are a bit retro. It was published in 1986, but it could just as well have been 1968. ( )

Älphabatics"is a book using different animals and objects doing acrobatics to teach the alphabet. This book would be great for Kindergarten.

a very simple book that discusses the alphabet and objects that represent those letters.

A is for ark. But did you know that if you turn an A upside down and round the point out a little, it becomes an ark? B is for balloon. But did you know that if you blow it up really big, the hole in the middle floats away like a balloon? In this wonderfully creative alphabet book, letters are pulled, twisted, reversed, and curled until they become part of what they represent. F becomes a fish, and Y becomes a yak!

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689716257, Paperback)

A is for ark. But did you know that if you turn an A upside down and round the point out a little, it becomes an ark?

B is for balloon. But did you know that if you blow it up really big, the hole in the middle floats away like a balloon?

In this wonderfully creative alphabet book, letters are pulled, twisted, reversed, and curled until they become part of what they represent. F becomes a fish, and Y becomes a yak!

Young readers will be fascinated with the way the letters evolve into the final creation. They'll never look at the alphabet the same way again!

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:08:23 -0400)

(see all 4 descriptions)

The letters of the alphabet are transformed and incorporated into twenty-six illustrations, so that the hole in "b" becomes a balloon and "y" turns into the head of a yak.
