With thick pages cut into the shape of each letter, children and parents will enjoy this peek-through guessing game around the letterform itself. Sprinkles, hot fudge, and cherries hint at the I’s ice cream sundae, while aquarium accessories hint at the F’s fish.


As readers interact with the pages, they will familiarize themselves not only with the 26 letters and associated words, but also with each letter’s physicality-angles, holes, and curves, both front and back. With Peskimo’s animated, stylish visuals, this fresh ABC book encourages readers to manipulate the alphabet in a whole new way.
