An inventive alphabet book with three-dimensional illustrations -- especially accessible for preschoolers

"C is for Clowncurved round like a noodle.
D is for Dog who looks like a poodle."

Come meet the most stupous performers in town -- monkeys on stilts, sheep on trapeze, and clowns of all shapes and sizes. These are just a few of the zany characters you'll discover at this three-ring show. But unlike most circus affairs, the performers in this extraordinary cast turn, twist, and flip through the air as they form the letters of the alphabet from A to Z.

With playful verse and stunning illustrations -- made of everything from cotton to wallpaper fabric -- Linda Bronson brings the alphabet and the circus together under one quirky tent.
