With so many alphabet books crowding bookstore shelves, what makes this 1960 reissue a standout? It's as simple as, well, ABC -- specifically, ABC's made kid-friendly by chunky black letters and clean-lined watercolors. Note the whimsical touches by Munari, a renowned graphic designer: A 'Vertical Violet Violin' spotlights the letter V, while a pesky fly buzzes from page to page until the book's conclusion, when it becomes 'a fly going Zzzz.' -Child Magazine
"[G]lorious....The crisp, clean lines make this a visual treat even for the very young..." The Horn Book Magazine

However, I have to say that it is absolutely beautiful! It's a masterclass in design.
It's funny, witty, inventive, creative. The fly theme that runs through it requires a creative mind, which I believe children are capable of understanding, especially in conjunction with exposure to more obvious alphabet books/sources.
A great book. Get the Zoo one as well!
Disappointed overall with this as wasn't what i was expecting.
