"An unusual alphabet book incorporates reinforcement of individual letters into a dazzling display of floral painting as Lobel links girls' names, flowers, and verbs in a chain of floral gifts."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books.

"Alison acquired an Amaryllis for Beryl" begins this gloriously illustrated celebration of our alphabet which connects a girls' name, a verb and a flower with each individual letter page turn by page turn leading us to our final fun, Zena zeroed in on a Zinnia for Alison."  Inventive wordplay, a sense of fun and the beauty of the myriad flowers in the amazing natural world that surrounds us make this book soar.  Perfect for children who search for details and for those who innately resonate with excellence in their stories.  This book respects these children and understands their never ending search for how other people "do things" the very "best" way.
