The Reading Nook | Paul Thurlby’s Alphabet
So what’s so special about an alphabet book? Hasn’t it been done before? Well, yes it has. Often. But every once in a while you find a special treasure of a book that takes a well worn subject and turns it on its head. This is Paul Thurlby’s Alphabet.
Why is it original? First, the words chosen for each letter are not necessarily the usual ones. From A is for Awesome to J is for Jazz and Q is for Quicksand – nothing ordinary here. Second, the illustrations are done in a block-print retro style with the letters themselves acting out the word.
This book is a clever gift for your friends with littles and for your friends who love beautiful illustrations. You can even buy prints of the individual letters here.
It’s a children’s book that will stay on your bookshelf long after your littles are big.
