A Little Book of Alliterations By Felix Arthur With Illustrations by Jenny Capon
Published by Inside Pocket in September 2010, priced £5.99
A Little Book of Alliterations is a new and entertaining journey through the alphabet, which is fun for both parents and young children alike.
Jenny Capon’s marvellous interpretation of Felix Arthur’s alphabetical and phonetic tongue-twisters represents a leap in visual literacy and offers something totally unique.
The 6 year old has enjoyed this book. She picks it up and reads several of the pages out, whilst trying not to get her tongue in a twist. We’ve had lots of fun making up our own alliterations based on our names including ‘lovely Laura likes licking luscious lemons’.
It’s an educational, funny and attractive little book that will travel all over with us for entertainment.
We recently visited Harewood House in North Yorkshire where they’ve just opened a little fish and chip shop. The 6 year old was the first to tell us that the words on the frontage were alliterated!
There is a great website , supporting the book, where you can leave your own alliterations, colour in your favourite character from the book, and find out more about the book.
