Letters from Melbourne: Making Pictures with the A-B-C (Hardcover)
Letters from Melbourne, a brand new typographic puzzle book by Maree Coote. This book works on three levels to give readers a fun and educational experience of Melbourne. Each spread contains a cheeky haiku-like poem about Melbourne. At the base of each page is a short fact of historic note about the subject. The puzzle picture-anagram, which is the key to the illustration, offers a letter and spelling challenge. Readers can spell their way around Melbourne's past, present, and even its personalities. Colors are bold and bright, and will appeal to all ages.
