Anteater aims his arrow and lets it fly. The arrow bounces off Big Brown Bear and catches on Camel's crystal ball. A mysterious treasure chest is revealed, and with each new letter, rambunctious animals all the way from A to Z join the race for the buried treasure. With its bright and bold illustrations, this stunning, wordless picture book turns learning the alphabet into a guessing game and a hunt for hidden letters that children and adults alike will enjoy. And, with its many interconnected tales that flow from letter to letter and from page to page, this book will inspire even the youngest of readers to become storytellers themselves.‘Exuberant, larger-than-life illustrations spill from the pages of this imaginative ABC book . . . Animals and people join together on a treasure hunt (the alphabet itself turns out to be the plunder), and readers accompany them, trekking across pages crammed with tantalizing detail, from hidden letters and an elusive treasure map to a plethora of objects beginning with the representative letter (on the ‘P’ page, for example, a cursory glance reveals paisley, plunger, pigs, pirate, puppet, pearls, plank, pot, parrot, pelican... and that’s just a sampling).’—Publishers Weekly. ‘Part hidden-picture game, part vocabulary stimulator, part art book...teachers will find the book full of possibilities for inspiring art and writing projects, and browsers will have a great time putting their imaginations to work.’—BL.
