4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Creative!! July 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I very much enjoyed this little gem of a book for the early reader. I have several grandchildren that love being read to and "The Lost Alphabet" certainly fits into the category of a well-written and creative book to read to them.

I think it's a great idea by Author Wendy Cartmell to include the 'Notes for Parents' at the end of the book. Her list of pointers or suggestions certainly add to the benefit of this book as an enjoyable educational experience for young children. Therefore, the guidance offered by the author and the teaching opportunity that follows enhance the true value of this children's book.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is one of the cutest books I have read. I love the personification of the letters and the way the usage is shown in words with out being too teachie ex. "M was up to his arms in mud", hilarious. I really enjoyed reading it and can't wait to share with my grandbaby. Loved the usage of the clipart and the notes to parents. Well done.

This is an adorable story about a day in the life of the alphabet. The illustrations were just enough to keep my 6 yr old peeking and we both enjoyed the story.

More About the Author

An avid crime reader, Wendy Cartmell had no hesitation when it came to choosing a genre for her novels. Her love of crime writing and her husband's 22 years service in the British Army, were the springboards for her Sgt Major Crane crime thrillers.
Wendy and her husband live on the sunny Costa del Sol with two Labradors and she attends a lively writing group who unashamedly gather at beautiful beach-side locations. In previous lives she gained a BA (Hons) in English and Education, was a teacher, worked in PR and marketing and was the editor of an in-house newspaper for a large corporate company.
There are five books in the Crane series so far, which have received critical acclaim;
'A pretty extraordinary talent' - Best Selling Crime Thrillers.
'This is genre fiction at its best, suspense that rivets and a mystery that keeps you guessing.' - A R Symmonds on Goodreads)

The Sgt Major Crane novels are more than mysteries with each book also covering social issues.
The Sgt Major Crane books in order are:
1. Steps to Heaven which looks at the state of mind of soldiers returning from the theatre of war. It covers issues such as mind control and suicide.
2. 40 Days 40 Nights covers the mind of a terrorist and the values of Islam. It also looks at the sad state of retired Gurkhas who come to the UK in search of a better life.
3. Honour Bound explores the delicate subject of sexual abuse in the military and beyond. What does such experiences do to the human psyche?
4. Cordon of Lies where Crane is determined to expose a cover-up in the British Army and get justice for the murdered army wives.
5. Regenerate is a tale of obsession, death and abduction. An army widow becomes mentally unstable as she copes with the death of her husband and child.
