Book
An artist’s approach to introducing the alphabet
 
Mouse airbrushes the A,
buttons the B,
carves the C . . .
 
Mouse is hard at work constructing each letter of the alphabet. He dyes the D, erases the E, and folds the F. Mouse works his way right through to Z, constructing an alphabet that surpasses even the wildest artistic imagination.
