#AtoZChallenge Letter Q


Ok so I’m being ironic today.  Q gave me problems.  I couldn’t think of an artist, poet or author who was appropriate for this letter and then I found this anarchic book.  Written by Mary Elting and Michael Folsom and beautifully illustrated by Jack Kent, I knew that it was just the book to buy for my grand-daughter.

So why is Q for duck?  It’s an alphabet guessing game so now it’s your turn to guess.

To help you, here are a couple of pages from the book.

Mary Elting and Michael Folsom were mother and son and collaborated on several books for children.  Jack Kent was a well-known cartoonist and the popular illustrator of over 60 books for children.  The book has been in print for 25 years.
