Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
T Is for Toscana by Gary Kelley uses the alphabet to sample the countryside, history, culture and food of the Tuscany region of Italy, with brief text and romantic artwork rendered in pastels. A full-bleed spread of the Ponte Vecchio (which straddles the "Arno" for "A") opens the attractive volume, then gives way to a framed depiction of narrow streets where cyclists prepare for a race on "Bicicletta." One-page pictures with thick white borders highlight cypress trees ("Cipressi") and a breathtaking view of Florence's Duomo. A delectable place setting with "Zuppa" (soup), bread and wine brings this appealing alphabet to a close. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
