The most beautifully illustrated book. Such a relief to find a childrens book with a quirky writing style. A firm favourite.
What a beautiful work....
Captivating, emotional, humourous, wacky, random, happy, clever, beautiful, magical and educational....this is what I think of it and MORE.
I really hope this book wins, it deserves to in every way and I hope that Mr. Henry Fisher will do more and more books...
This is a wonderully imaginative and whimsical book full of warmth and humour and so beautifully illustrated that my child's eyes light up as soon as I open the book....
My boys just adore these funny little characters each represeting a letter of the alphabet. Every page results in either a shriek of laughter or the oldest coming up with his own 'voice-over' for the animal/character!
Our children love this book. The pictures are so detailed and beautiful that it gives us lots to talk about. Also a lovely gift for others.
This is one of the most charming and beautifully illustrated children's books I have seen in a long time. It is so imaginative and my Grandchildren all adore it.
