Format: Hardcover
The book was about a boy who needed help with learning his alphabet and the Ministry of Letters helped him.

I think other kids would like this book because it is a great book with great pictures and it's funny! Charlie Foxtrot is a great name.

My favorite part is when they first told us about all the letters working in the factory. My other favorite part was the pictures. I like how much detail they put in and that they used scribble scrabble to colour in things like the desk and the hair. I also love the pink apostrophe!

I think every age would like it! Even grown ups! And boys and girls would both like it. I think the agent who took down the message and sped off on roller skates should be a girl.

This is a beautiful book and a great story for 4-6 year olds. The quality of the paper and illustrations are superb. A wonderful addition to any child's library.

Format: Hardcover
Operation Alphabet is a superb book that is a real joy to get lost inside. It is wonderful for children but also has a classic feel, and in fact made me nostalgic. It seamlessly weaves narrative with the alphabet and is full of characters that children will really love. The illustrations are marvelous and this book would be just at home on the coffee table as the bedside table.

The book arrived in the promised length of time but was not as in the condition
I was expecting. I even made sure, on my invoice, that I ordered a new book. The
book was not new! There were stains, dogeared corners, the book sleeve was
scraped, worn and had gouges on the back.
