Apple Pie ABC

Apple Pie ABC
written & illustrated by Alison Murray
Disney Hyperion Books, 2011. Unpaged. Picture book.

In this mouthwatering alphabet book, a journey through the ABCs begins with an apple pie and a little dog. The author cleverly creates a story with each phrase beginning with a letter of the alphabet (with the exception of "X" and "Z" which are uniquely incorporated). Gorgeous, crisp, retro styled illustrations accompany the story with the typography boldly featured. Although this is a delight to an adult or an older child, it may not be as clear to the younger audience learning their ABCs, but will still be enjoyed at some level by all. Definitely a must read!
