Alphabet books play an important role in getting children into reading. They establish enjoyment by introducing the letters from which all language is built. Not only that but they teach the new reader how the letter is pronounced and words that begin with that letter.

This new picture book does all this and more because it gives each letter a personality and a great sense of fun is established.

Master Jet the young boy character has not written his alphabet and is cornered by his teacher. Like all children he makes up an excuse for not doing so and it is straight out of his imagination. A ran away, B was so sad she didn’t stay…

You get the drift it is told in rhyming text and is very witty. Master Jet gets his payment, read it and see what it is.

Lenny Win gives character  and fun to each letter. I loved Q and X. See if you have a favourite too.

Great book for juniors to pour over and for adults to read  aloud.
