This picture book was a pleasant surprise – I had thought we might go on an adventure with a girl learning her alphabet, but it’s actually about a book containing the alphabet for children to learn from that gets tired of being borrowed from the library by kids and wants to be with the adult books! How cute!
It’s a curious little adventure that quizzically explores the idea of the grass being greener on the other side, and I thought that was done well. But most of all I loved the illustrations in this. There is a beautiful, orange-y double spread of an African plain (a strange setting you might think for a story about a library book, but it all makes sense) that was just gorgeous.
Plus who doesn’t love pages upon pages of illustrations of bookshelves? This is a great little story to read with little ones and appreciate all the things that are actually quite good in life. Plus you get the added bonus of a few fun illustrations of some of the letters of the alphabet.
