We have many ABC books on our bookshelves but none with such sweet and yet detailed illustrations.

The selection of words are very good. Q is particularly brilliant, usually you’re fobbed off with Queen, but here they very nicely use Queue and depict queuing with a row of ducks waiting to jump into a pond.

Although the pages aren’t as thick as other board books, they do seem to withstand my over-excited toddler’s grip.

There are currently 27 available for loan in the Surrey Libraries network.
