Elegant paintings illustrate each letter of the alphabet

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- Another New Yorker artist makes a picture book debut. In fact, several pages of this alphabet book, in slightly different form, were originally that magazine's covers. Simpson uses her precise and luminous artwork in restrained colors to make readers look again at familiar objects from unusual perspectives, often presenting part of an object in close-up. Perception is challenged, and some items are far easier than others to identify: a cabbage for "c"; eggs for "e"; a flag for "f"; and xylophone for "x" won't confound many readers. But accompanying "p" is a photograph of what looks like paint or pudding; the dance shoes for "d" are seen only as straps and curves, and the unicycle for "u" may leave even alert adults scratching their heads. For the confused, all objects are identified at the end. This is a sophisticated book in both pictures and concept, and rewards repeated viewings. However, with so many excellent titles available, this one is suitable primarily for larger collections or those interested in the alphabet book as a work of art. --Leda Schubert, Vermont Department of Education, Montpelier
