1 Edwards, Wallace Alphabeasts
Toronto Kids Can Press 2002 1-55337-386-3 / 9781553373865 First Edition Hard Cover As New Near Fine The Author 
1st printing w/complete number sequence. True first edition and winner of the 2002 Governor General's Award for Children's Literature/Illustration. A gorgeously illustrated volume merging fantasy and reality, "a unique collection of animal portraits that will ignite the imaginations of young and old alike." Each letter of the alphabet is complemented with the fantasy-tinged illustration of an animal whose name begins with that letter, accompanied by two lines of verse (AB) completed on the next animal illustration with the next two lines (CB) ("A is for Alligator,/awake from a dream./B is for Bat,/slurping ice cream./C is for Cat,/who reflects on its self,/D is for Duck,/guarding toys on a shelf."). This is a lovely piece of work, and well-deserving of the Governor General's Award. Illustrated boards, unpaginated. A nice unread copy of a title now uncommon in first edition. 
Price: 50.00 USD
