- Alphabetter by Dan Bar-el
A mixed-up alphabet creates merry mayhem.
Did you ever try to use an egg in place of a football? Or dress up a live quail in doll’s clothes when you didn’t have a doll? Or strap rag-dolls onto your feet in place of slippers? In Alphabetter, twenty-six boys and girls find themselves in twenty-six different predicaments when the alphabet refuses to cooperate with them. In the end, the solution turns out to be right on the next page, if only they can find it …
- A Call for a New Alphabet by Jef Czekaj
Get ready for an alphabet revolution!
