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 not 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.
