These offbeat alphabet books will open out a barrage of questions and follow up discussions from the child. Read the book by yourself, anticipate questions and read up on topics that you may not know answers for. Here is a short list of my favourite offbeat Alphabet Books.
Ever come across a fairy tale where the story is completely changed or twisted. Well, if you want to sound all literary next time just call them ‘Fractured’. The term Fractured Fairy Tales apparently originated in the 1950’s television series ‘The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show’.
Varmints is a story about how industrialisation and urbanisation is destroying the environment. The words are light and the illustrations are heavy.
I quite enjoyed the book. It is a short adventure that you can finish in less than half a day. In short, the book is a about an egg that is misplaced by the evil Dr POX and found by Sam in the sandpit.
