Review:
Too often alphabet books are big on pictures but scrimp on the wordplay. Not so with this book. The author has taken the cagey step of involving young readers (and the grownups who help them)in a spy mission that can only be solved by becoming a better and more discriminating reader. The lead Spy in the book is dispatched to find a missing Agent who does not use his or her assigned letter. On the way, we meet all the other agents and the interesting espionage activities they engage in with words and great humor. Highly recommended for fans of anything having to do with spies...or fun.
