Alphablock features thick pages cut into the shape of each letter, creating a sort of peek-through guessing game around the letter form itself. As children interact with the pages, they will familiarize themselves t only with the 26 letters and associated words, but also with each letter's physicality -- angles, holes and curves, both front and back. Illustrated by hip British design team Peskimo, this fresh high-concept ABC book encourages readers to manipulate the alphabet in a whole new way.
