Publishers Summmary:

Jenny Capon’s marvellous interpretation of Felix Arthur’s alphabetical and phonetic tongue-twisters represents a leap in visual literacy, offering something totally unique. An entertaining journey through the alphabet which is fun for parents and children alike. Poetic vampire bats, speaking sea urchins, piano playing penguins, champion carrot-crunching cockroaches… All is not as it seems!

The Turkeybird Gets Tongue Tied: “Trying to talk to my mom today in all Ts is tough! Haha! When we were writing my review I kept wiggling and giggling. It’s super silly to speak in the same letters but it’s super fun too!

“I’m still trying to work on it, but this book was so funny. I really liked the ‘CH’ page:

Chunky Charlie
cheerily chewed
chips and cheddar cheese
(p. 10 of A Little Book of Alliterations by Felix Arthur)

“Isn’t that the funniest thing ever! The monkeys on the page next to it are even more funny. The best is trying to say it so fast that you get all goofy. Not all of them are super funny, but there are some I like the very best that I keep having my mom read over and over.”

Mom’s Two Cents: “Filled with silly sayings that have little ones in stitches over the smallest things, A Little Book of Alliterations by Felix Arthur and illustrated by Jenny Capon is a book to be enjoyed and learned from. From A to Z (and even a few in between) young readers are exposed to new words and a variety of ways to use them to create what quite often turn out to be realistic but hilarious situations. In addition to the use of alliteration on each page there are also accompanying illustrations that may or may not have anything to do with the alliterations themselves, but are quirky just as the words are.

“This was a really fun read! Not only did the Turkeybird enjoy learning new words, but it was fun to see how giggly he got by just listening to the combinations. Being someone who struggled with rhyming and alliteration as a child it’s nice to have entertaining yet educational books to share with my children that I know they’ll enjoy and that I will be able to teach from. A Little Book of Alliterations was quirky with some very unique illustrations by Jenny Capon that often also had the Turkeybird chuckling. Obviously, not every page was a huge hit (he’s still a bit young), but I’m positive that with time and age he’ll be able to appreciate each alliteration as a way of learning about each letter of the alphabet in an enjoyable way.

A Little Book of Alliterations by Felix Arthur is a fantastic addition to any young learners’ library. With quirky illustrations and an alphabet directory filled with hilarious alliterations it’s sure to be a book kiddos will appreciate for quite some time. Our family has thoroughly enjoyed learning all of the new words for each of the letters and spent quite a bit of time laughing over the combinations the author created. Educational and entertaining all in one book, A Little Book of Alliterations by Felix Arthur is the perfect book to appreciate over time with little minds looking longing for learning.”

The1stdaughter Recommends: Ages 4 to 8. An educational yet fun book filled with quirky illustrations that young readers will truly enjoy.
