This is a post for the A to Z Challenge. Thank you for stopping by! If this is your first visit it might be a good idea to read my past posts. Otherwise –
My featured book today is I Spy: An Alphabet in Art by Lucy Micklewait. I mention the author because there are so many I Spy books on the market.
Most even start the same, “I spy with my little eye…” Which brings me to my tangent of similar titles.
What makes this book unique from the other “I Spy” books is the way the author chooses famous paintings for the children to find hidden objects.
OK, that’s all I have to say about that. Now onto THE GREAT ALPHABET DISASTER.
After H’s heat, I’s Icy page was a bit inclement for the investigating letters.
“What Is H so hot about?” I inquired before any letter could speak. “My Igloo is practically liquid!”
“His house is impaired,” offered B, “Do you have any inclination where my Ball is?”
“Indubitably,” I said. “It slid across my Ice and smashed Into my Icicles!”
“Oh, I’m sorry,” B said.
“I doubt It was your fault,” I replied kindly, “I got a glimpse of the Intruder, and It had an open hook, a little like C’s, but going the other way.”
“I Cannot Confirm nor deny it was me,” C said, irritated.
“We’re not Accusing you, C,” assured A, “But that does give us an idea of what the letter looks like. “
C drew a character sketch of a letter in her notepad. It looked nothing like herself, but it didn’t much look like any other letter either.
“Well,” said C, holding up her sketch, “Now that we have a Concept of the Culprit, what say we Continue and Catch that Crook red-handed?”
A and B were inclined to agree, so the three letters slid onto the next page.
Still Intrigued? The Intrigue continues In the next Installment of THE GREAT ALPHABET DISASTER…
I write about, with, for, and around kids all day. (Well, maybe I do the dishes too. Sometimes.)
