Suddenly the verse and pictures are off on a romp with the bees and the birds and the flowers, who fly, creep, crawl, and hum through the grasses of the meadow, the letters of the alphabet, and the pages of this fresh, alive picture book. — Unlike ... more »most alphabets, it has a villain, the huge-footed clucking monster who sends the meadow creatures into hiding and proceeds to devour the apricot.
