Step Four: Crayons on strike, obviously.

So Let it Go (get it?), and check it out. And while you’re at it, check out Oliver Jeffers’ brand spanking new, Once Upon an Alphabet and thank me later, because you had no idea you were hoping to read short stories about each and every letter in the alphabet. I know you didn’t. But now you do. Trust  me. Oliver Jeffers. That is all.

jeffersThe Dolphin’s got copies of both!

Happy reading on a happy Fall day!

Note: Everything by Jeffers is magic, see also Stuck, This Moose Belongs to Me, The Heart and the Bottle, The Incredible Book Eating Boy, and on and on it goes…
