Book Overview


The alphabet is gloriously brought to life by international best-selling picture book creator, Oliver Jeffers. This beautiful paperback edition is based on Once Upon an Alphabet which won the CBI Book of the Year Award.

From an astronaut afraid of heights, to dynamic detectives the Owl and the Octopus, by way of some rusting robots, you will find within this book a short story inspired by every letter of the alphabet.

By turns funny, sad, mischievous and surprising, these entertaining mini-tales are accompanied by Jeffers’ witty and inviting illustrations.
