Praise for Once Upon an Alphabet

An Amazon Best Book of 2014!

A Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year!

A School Library Journal Best Book of the Year!

* The silly, spare, slightly surreal text occasionally rhymes and endlessly surprises. An utterly delightful alphabet book.-Kirkus Review, starred review

* With wry humor, equally droll ink illustrations, and a solid dose of alliteration, Jeffers creates delightful mini-narratives for each letter of the alphabet.-Publishers Weekly, starred review

* An altogether stimulating, surprising, and satisfying reading experience.-School Library Journal, starred review

* Whimsical, funny, occasionally tragic, and highly entertaining, this collection of (sometimes) interlocking tales is brilliantly inventive.-Horn Book, starred review

Jeffers knows how to catch the attention of his young audience while challenging their imagination, intellect and vocabulary. This whimsical exploration of letters and language begs to be read over and over again.-BookPage


Handsome, humorous and clad in bright tomato-red, [this] is the sort of book you may want to rush into the arms of imaginative, good-natured children between 4 and 10 years old. [T]his is no traditional abecedarian exercise.The stories are wonderfully varied, sometimes philosophical and often end surprisingly; the drawings are just as quirky and unpredictable.-The Wall Street Journal

[W]itty from A to Z . . . no one would blame you for having a copy even if there are no kids in the house. Think of it as Edward Gorey for the preschool set -- and their hip parents.-The Washington Post
