Das ausgelassene ABC
"Take out the A and read turns red. (And paint slims down to pint.)" But not only that: without the K, a monkey turns to money! Instead of swinging from trees and eating bananas, it's ready for the piggy bank. Without the L, flour becomes four and black turns back. Take out the N and watch months turn to moths and fly away. Erase the E to make a bear a bar and every fear very far."
Author Ina Hattenhauer gives two full pages to showing the marvelous words that result when each letter of the alphabet disappears. Beautifully detailed illustrations show just how much fun she had with her discoveries. Look close and you'll see a whole world of astonishing details like owls juggling bowls, hose-wielding horses, or singers with stingers.
