A was an Apple Pie
Another traditional rhyme (OK, it's a rhyme that doesn't). and another alphabet book. This one dates back several hundred years; indeed early versions omit the letters I and U (because at the time the capital letter forms were just thought of as different versions of J and V). Of course, the Ampersand (the "&" sign) isn't a letter and never has been, but I like the sound of the word, and it ties up the poem nicely. And it gave me an excuse to draw a baby.
is no logical sequence or story, although O and P are clearly connected, as are
S and T! I particularly like "U", the clumsy teenager, and the mournful
"M" with her black hanky. Did anyone spot the mathematical pun in "Q"?
