PB Planet Daily Spotlight: ABC UK

Big PB Planet applause for ABC UK by James Dunn, illustrated by Helen Bate (Frances Lincoln Children's Books, 2008). This patriotic ABC book from our friends across the pond is a surprisingly fun read! There are expected entries ("B is for The Beatles," "Q is for Queen,") but some surprises too. And everyone will giggle over trying to pronounce "L is for Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch." (And, if you're like we were and don't know what "Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch" is, there's a helpful glossary in the back. We're now in the Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch know!) A great array of picks by Dunn, with creative, eye-catching illustrations by Bate. (Her Yorkshire Pudding pic will make you crave it!) Zoom on over to your local bookstore and bring a copy back to your home planet today!
