The Alphabet Thief

A picture book by Bill Richardson.

Bill Richardson

When night falls, along comes a peculiar thief who steals each letter of the alphabet, creating a topsy-turvy world as she goes. It seems that no one can stop her, until the Z's finally send her to sleep so that all the other letters can scamper back to where they belong.

Bill Richardson's zany rhymes and Roxanna Bikadoroff's hilarious illustrations will delight young readers with the silly fun they can have with language — and may even inspire budding young writers and artists to create their own word games. (From Groundwood Books)
