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.
