4.0 out of 5 stars Fun with words 13 Nov 2010
By Parents in Touch TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
I know this charming little book is not actually poetry, but it reads aloud just like a poem! It starts off: 'Awful Aunt Agatha ate all of Arthur's available apples' and continues to live up to the entertainment value of the first page. I think this book will inspire people to have a go themselves and anything that inspires creative wrining is great. The illustrations capture the spirit of the book perfectly and are great fun in themselves. They are crammed full of entertaining detail, so don't skip over them but relish them. At the end of the book, you are invited to submit your own alliterations to [...]

4.0 out of 5 stars An educational yet fun book filled with quirky illustrations that young readers will truly enjoy. 24 Nov 2011
By Danielle M. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Filled with silly sayings that have little ones in stitches over the smallest things, A Little Book of Alliterations by Felix Arthur and illustrated by Jenny Capon is a book to be enjoyed and learned from. From A to Z (and even a few in between) young readers are exposed to new words and a variety of ways to use them to create what quite often turn out to be realistic but hilarious situations. In addition to the use of alliteration on each page there are also accompanying illustrations that may or may not have anything to do with the alliterations themselves, but are quirky just as the words are.

This was a really fun read! Not only did the Turkeybird enjoy learning new words, but it was fun to see how giggly he got by just listening to the combinations. Being someone who struggled with rhyming and alliteration as a child it's nice to have entertaining yet educational books to share with my children that I know they'll enjoy and that I will be able to teach from. A Little Book of Alliterations was quirky with some very unique illustrations by Jenny Capon that often also had the Turkeybird chuckling. Obviously, not every page was a huge hit (he's still a bit young), but I'm positive that with time and age he'll be able to appreciate each alliteration as a way of learning about each letter of the alphabet in an enjoyable way.

A Little Book of Alliterations by Felix Arthur is a fantastic addition to any young learners' library. With quirky illustrations and an alphabet directory filled with hilarious alliterations it's sure to be a book kiddos will appreciate for quite some time. Our family has thoroughly enjoyed learning all of the new words for each of the letters and spent quite a bit of time laughing over the combinations the author created. Educational and entertaining all in one book, A Little Book of Alliterations by Felix Arthur is the perfect book to appreciate over time with little minds looking longing for learning.
