The Dangerous Alphabet
A is for Always, that's where we embark...
- A piratical ghost story for wee geeks (recommended age 4 - 8 years)
- Story by national bestselling author Neil Gaiman
- Illustrated by the monstrously talented Gris Grimly
A is for Always, that's where we embark...If you're tired of sappy, sweet, hokey alphabet books, Neil Gaiman and Gris Grimly have a treat for you. In the Dangerous Alphabet Book, two Victorian children and their wide-eyed pet gazelle slip away from their house and go into the underworld in search of treasure. When the sister gets kidnapped, her brother braves a labyrinth full of pirates, monsters, trolls, and other creatures to rescue her. Beautiful gothic illustrations in sepia tones and faded color washes fill this book, which is a must-have for Gaiman fans, or any wee geeks who love a scary story.
(Also, good luck not hearing this in Neil Gaiman's voice.)
