Publisher Summary

Learn the alphabet from A to Z with the help of Annabelle the doll. Each gorgeously illustrated spread features one of her favorite things. With antique boxes, parasols, and yarn for knitting, children can learn the alphabet in grand style. Review Young children will welcome the return of a classic from the mother of children’s illustrators, Tasha Tudor. A Is for Annabelle is a quaint, old-fashioned alphabet book graced with Tudor’s intricately detailed, highly appealing illustrations. Annabelle is a china doll that belonged to Grandmother. Two little girls play their way through the alphabet, dressing up this lovely doll (“H is her Hat with an elegant feather”) all the way through X (“the letter for which I’ve no rhyme”), Y (“the Yarn her stockings to mend”), and Z (“her Zither and this is the end”). Alternating black-and-white illustrations with full-color spreads, Tudor surrounds each page with a graceful floral border and includes such charming details as a sewing basket with a pincushion, a cricket peering at a pink patchwork quilt, and the tiny boxes containing Annabelle’s hats, slippers, and earrings. Little girls will find Annabelle and her alphabetical wardrobe irresistible. Tasha Tudor is the Caldecott Honor artist of 1 Is One and more than 90 other well-loved picture books.
