A charming, challenging alphabet book created by gifted Kitchener artist, Emily Hunsberger. Each letter is adorned by her monkey puppets illustrating the alliteration for the letter. From “Adventurous Astronaut” to “Inquisitive Investigator”, the book entertains and engages readers of all ages. It was so much fun when the eight-year-old friend asked me, “What is ‘inquisitive’?” and we walked around the yard each thinking about things we were inquisitive about. In the end he delighted in the new word and we went on to acting 'zany' along with the zookeeper.
The book includes endnotes with a page of additional alphabet alliterations with an invitation to create more, plus a pattern to create a monkey puppet.
All monkeys and other creatures, clothing and poses are created and photographed by Emily.
