MEDIA REVIEWS
Picture books are definitely not only for children - all ages will delight in this stunningly illustrated book which helps us to look at letters in unexpected ways; the words don't obviously match the letters, making you think. Exceptional and ingenious, Norman Messenger has transformed the alphabet into extraordinary objects in this visionary collection of flora, fauna and more. Not just capital letters either - lower case letters are cleverly juxtaposed to give thought-provoking illustrations. This is a Walker Studio book which will make a beautiful gift for any art-lover. Very clever. * Parents In Touch *
a stunner * The Observer *
[..] a surreal book whose graphic brilliance includes arching caterpillars forming the letter B for butterfly, twisted twine for T and other clever mnemonics marrying shape with sound Children will look at it for hours. * New Statesman *
While parents puzzle over the meanings, small children will be tracing the curious shapes with their fingers - just as they ought to learn their letters. * The Wall Street Journal *
