About the Book



The wordbug teaches the letters on the alphabet tree, tossed by a windstorm, how to become stronger by banding together to form words. Lionni's gentle parable is now available in hardcover for the first time in many years. Full color.



Book Synopsis



From beloved Caldecott winning picture book creator Leo Lionni, this fable is about sticking together and sending a message of peace to those in charge.

When a fierce wind threatens to blow all the little letters out of the alphabet tree, they must band together in words--and then sentences--to create a message that's even stronger than the wind: peace on earth. With their newfound knowledge, there's nothing the letters can't do in this gentle parable about the power of the written word.



Review Quotes




"The Alphabet Tree, by Leo Lionni, is tops on the list of picture books that teach as well as amuse." --Time

"Handsomely illustrated . . . an amusing and informative word game." --The Chicago Sun-Times



About the Author



Leo Lionni, an internationally known designer, illustrator, and graphic artist, was born in Holland and lived in Italy until he came to the United States in 1939. He was the recipient of the 1984 American Institute of Graphic Arts Gold Medal and was honored posthumously in 2007 with the Society of Illustrators' Lifetime Achievement Award. His picture books are distinguished by their enduring moral themes, graphic simplicity and brilliant use of collage, and include four Caldecott Honor Books: Inch by Inch, Frederick, Swimmy, and Alexander and the Wind-Up Mouse. Hailed as "a master of the simple fable" by the Chicago Tribune, he died in 1999 at the age of 89.
