Letters are MAGIC. When you know their secrets, like a bright bird, you take flight. Hop along with a playful rabbit emcee and see for yourself!
Tony Johnston is the award-winning author of over one hundred children's books including, most recently, A Small Thing . . . but Big, illustrated by Hadley Hooper. She worked with Wendell Minor on picture books Sequoia and Cat, What Is That?, as well as collaborated with Tomie dePaola on titles like The Quilt Story and The Tale of Rabbit and Coyote. She lives in San Marino, California.
"the text is heartfelt, and Minor's sketchbook-style illustrations have an immediacy and energy that will make readers feel that they're peering over his shoulder as the drawings take shape."--Publishers Weekly
"A fanciful and enthusiastic romp through Letterville that could
spark a love of reading and writing in some children. Best for
one-on-one sharing."--School Library Journal
"Journey through a land where words take flight and spark creativity. A fantastical bespectacled rabbit is readers' guide into a top hat and through Johnston and Minor's wonderland of words as they celebrate the power of language to instruct, inspire, and delight children. . . . A charming ode to the lyricism of language."--Kirkus Reviews
"Talented picture-book author Johnston here celebrates language itself, starting with letters . . . Casual and highly textured graphite and digital art, with letters and words in crisp font roaming through the spreads, is a significant departure from Minor's usually polished style, and its rollicking vigor is inviting."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
