Praise For…


A puzzle book, an alphabet book, a carefully statge series of surreal dramatic events, a sequence of imaginative visual images, this is as intriguing as any of Van Allsburg's books. Whimsical, sophisticated, this should appeal to a wide audience...
Kirkus Reviews

Van Allsburg presents an alphabetical morality play in 26 acts.....This clever romp resembles old vaudeville theater, with one curious act followin the next.
