Description

Adam and Sophia are twins. Sophia has wings and Adam doesn't. One day their parents leave. "Don't go into the forest," they said, but Adam did. Adam gave his word, and broke it. Now he is lost and alone, and his voice is gone. Sophia flies overhead and drops a piece of paper. It flutters into the forest. Except for a lock of hair the paper is blank. Immediately, adventures and experiences unfold for Adam, some common, some extraordinary, some unearthly and beautiful. Letters appear on the paper as Adam wakes up to his 'alphabet'. Slowly, painfully, joyously Adam wins back his word. Adam's Alphabet is an alphabet tale unlike any written before. Multilayered and broad, it reads as a children's story, but underneath run deeper waters that adults can plumb for profit and pleasure if they take delight in the spoken word. Adam's Alphabet is suitable for children aged 7 to 12.… (more)
