A word totally transforms if you take away just one letter - without the A, the beast is best. Without the W, the witch has an itch! This is an alphabet book like no other. An irreverant exploration not only of letters in their alphabetic order, but also of how they form words and communicate ideas. Packed with humour and wordplay, the author and illustrator effortlessly play off each other to enhance humour and meaning. Children will not be able to resist inventing imaginative examples of their own.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"All alphabet books require mastery of the letters in order to read them, but this one manages that paradox with genius." * The New York Times Book Review *
"Beyond the inherent fun of the concept (which has plenty of potential for classroom activities), every scene tells a story - it's practically 26 books in one." * STARRED REVIEW, Publishers Weekly *
"Amid the flood of alphabet books, now and then one rises to the surface. This one is a prize catch." * STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus Reviews *
"A playful celebration of language not as a dry, mathematical exercise in letter-organisation but as a living organism, in which letters make meaning through a vast mesh of metaphorical associations driven by the imagination - the very faculty that is the hallmark of children's minds." -- Maria Popova * Brain Pickings *
"A silly but smart introduction to wordplay" * Irish Times *
