Review

I really wish Brenda's books were around when my now eight-year was younger.  I just know he would have spent hours swiping the pages back and forth on our iPad, quietly soaking up at her artwork." Alpha Mom

About the Author

Brenda Ponnay is a stealthy secret agent who juggles parenthood to her adorable daughter by day and freelance graphic design/illustration by night. Whether it’s painting, baking, drawing, making castles out of cardboard boxes or just doing the laundry with flair, Brenda Ponnay has learned that what really makes her happy is being creative every single day. You can read about all her crazy adventures on her personal blog: www.secret-agent-josephine.com

More About the Author

Mother by day, Secret Agent by night! Or at least that's what I've been telling everyone on the internet for the last five years. The reality is I juggle motherhood and a bustling graphic design and illustration business all day long and deep into the night. The lines are blurred and that is what makes me a Secret Agent or a super hero, either one.

My daughter is my muse and she creeps into my art in the most unexpected ways (sometimes literally).

Customer Reviews

ABC's is a wonderful book for any preschooler, uniquely funny and adorable.

My biggest complaint is the lack of Secret Agent Josephine - she appears on the cover and not on the letter pages, so I felt (and I think a child might feel) misled.

He always wants to play with my IPod touch, so when I let him start the book, he buzzed right though it.

I downloaded this book because it was free. If I had paid for it, I would be a bit irritated. Ok, yes it was illustrated. A is for Apple, B is for Bug...you get the idea. The words were in REALLY tiny print next to a big A or B and were not adjustable, being a part of the illustration and not seperate. Also, there was no Agent Josephine. I would expect a children's book that calls itself A Secret Agent Adventure, to have a secret agent and an adventure. The illustrations were nice but overall the story was lacking. It provided nothing new to the usual ABC picture book. I will think twice before downloading aother Secret Agent Josephine Adventure...unless the mystery is, where is Josephine.

Well done, nice quality, brightly colored graphics! Each letter includes an object that begins with that letter - most of these are everyday items (animals, food, etc) that young children can easily identify.

Love the idea of using these over the traditional paper flashcards which seem to always be tattered or missing cards. The only thing I miss being able to do is to 'mix up the stack' to give your child more of a challenge. I suppose you could just hit the point button at the bottom and show whatever comes up sporadically, it just seems sort of awkward to do so. Of course, this is also a great book for getting started and becoming familiar with letters.

This is a wonderfully illustrated book of ABCs. I have to admit I always like to see a frog for F (they had a fishy) and I think it was creative to use Jellyfish, Newt, Octopus, Pumpkin things that aren't usually used. The colorful items that go with the letters make it a great book to share together. Would love to see more Secret Agent Josephine

I'm a new iPhone user, and this is the first e-book I've ever purchased/downloaded. I "tested" it out with my 2.5-year-old son, whose face just lit up as we flipped through the colorful and easy-to-understand alphabet cards. He knew most of the letters (he mixes up K and Q!), and almost all of the associated images, too. When we were done, he immediately asked if we could "do it 'gain, Mama!" Before playing with the cards, he didn't know the word "jellyfish," but on the second go-through, he remembered it!

What a delightful collection of ABC flashcards, and a delightful addition to my iPhone.

I've admired Brenda Ponnay's alphabet cards since she first posted the art on her blog several years ago. I was a little apprehensive about a Kindle version, since half the fun of her art is the COLOR, but even in black and white these sweet illustrations are cute and charming. Five stars!

We had the alphabet cards for learning the ABCs from way back when from Brenda's website. The ebook is so familiar for my daughter and now that she knows all the letters, she's branching out to the other things she can learn from the adorable illustrations for each letter. Learning the sounds, the words, the spelling of them, she loves flipping through the e-pages to each one. And her favorites, the M for her name and the E for her sister! The best part, we won't lose these, bend them, tear them, color on them, and we can take them EVERYWHERE for her. She's already started sharing it with her one-year old sister and trying to teach her the letters and shapes and colors. The vibrant and cute illustrations make it so fun to "learn" that it doesn't seem like a task to the kids at all.

Secret Agent Josephine's ABCs (Learn with Secret Agent Josephine)Having three kids, we've seen a lot of alphabet books. This book quickly became a favorite for a few reasons.
Being digital, I know the pages will all stay intact, so that's the first great thing about it. The illustrations are fantastic! I bought it for my 2 year old, but his 5 & 8 year old sisters love it just as much. It's a lot more original & fun than a lot of books we've seen. I think my favorite part is Q is for quetzal; I'd love to have that letter framed in our homeschool classroom!

It's a cute ABC book with cute illustrations, don't get me wrong, but with that exciting title, I guess I expected something way more interesting and unique. But no, it's just another book with a picture for A, a picture for B, a picture for C. And not even ones that are themaically related to spies or anything. Just an average ABC book, nothing more. It's too bad. Josephine the Secret Agent could have been a fun theme for the ABCs!
