Synopsis

From adoring alligators
to zany zebras,
the animals in this book
are sure to keep you amused
with their antics.

And look at the acrobats!
For they are
a talented group indeed.

Using only their bodies,
these limber contortionists
are merrily forming
all twenty-six letters
of the alphabet.

The animals are impressed.

You will be, too!
