Owls Are Good at Keeping Secrets: An Unusual Alphabet

(3) PS Illustrated by Jacob Grant. In this playful, out-of-the-box alphabet book, O'Leary pairs large uppercase and lowercase letters with an animal or mythical creature while including a characteristic or inference (mostly made up) about said critter. "Ii: Iguanas sometimes get homesick on sleepovers." "Uu: Unicorns believe in themselves." Abundant white space highlights the emotive expressions displayed by each personality-filled creature.
