Editorial Reviews

"This alphabet book is not just about words that begin with the 26 letters; it’s also a graphic display of the myriad fonts found at a fair...the pages seem to sparkle and blink with the bright lights of a midway...As alphabet books go, this one is delightful. As graphic art goes, it’s alive with evocative, almost magical examples. Readers will be delighted with the images of fun and games, rides and blue ribbons, food and prizes."--School Library Journal
"Frasier shows that there is a dizzying array of words to be found amid the visual cacophony of the
fairgrounds....The illustrations are eye-catching...In each busy spread, the featured letter appears many times...creating an interactive find-and-seek game as children try to spot and count each one.--Booklist
"Frasier has hold of a terrific idea: find photographic examples of all 26 letters of the alphabet amid the garish typography of state fairs....the colorful and cluttered spreads evoke the energy of the fair."--Publishers Weekly
