In the press:
With so many alphabet books crowding bookstore shelves, what makes this 1960 reissue a standout? It’s as simple as, well, ABC — specifically, ABC’s made kid-friendly by chunky black letters and clean-lined watercolors. Note the whimsical touches by Munari, a renowned graphic designer: A ‘Vertical Violet Violin’ spotlights the letter V, while a pesky fly buzzes from page to page until the book’s conclusion, when it becomes ‘a fly going Zzzz.’ -Child Magazine

“[G]lorious….The crisp, clean lines make this a visual treat even for the very young…” The Horn Book Magazine
