Whatley's Quest: An Alphabet Adventure by Bruce Whatley, Rosie Smith
'Exuberant, larger-than-life illustrations spill from the pages of this imaginative ABC book . . . Animals and people join together on a treasure hunt (the alphabet itself turns out to be the plunder), and readers accompany them, trekking across pages crammed with tantalizing detail, from hidden letters and an elusive treasure map to a plethora of objects beginning with the representative letter (on the 'P' page, for example, a cursory glance reveals paisley, plunger, pigs, pirate, puppet, pearls, plank, pot, parrot, pelican... and that's just a sampling).'Publishers Weekly. 'Part hidden-picture game, part vocabulary stimulator, part art book...teachers will find the book full of possibilities for inspiring art and writing projects, and browsers will have a great time putting their imaginations to work.'BL.
