An alphabet adventure
One day i chanced to stop for t
and listen to sweet Mellow D,
in her old H beside the sea,
sing of her long-lost Mister E.
She said he'd hid a treasure chest
out on an I-land to the west.
Just where it's buried she knew not.
But X would surely mark the spot.
Come join the letter men of the Alphaboat as they cross the high seas on a treasure-hunting trip! All twenty-six characters are here, from uppercase officers Captain C and Admiral T to lowercase crewmen silent e and sleepy z.
Packed with visual and verbal puns, this jaunty picture book salutes nautical yarns of yore as it takes readers where no alphabet book has sailed before.
