Visit from St. Alphabet by Morice, Dave
Visit from St. Alphabet
by Morice, Dave
 

"'Twas the night before X" in Dave Morice's lighthearted and enchanting poem, A Visit from St. Alphabet:

The S's were hung by the T's with care
In hopes that St. Alphabet soon would be there.

Without fail, he arrives and presents quite a sight:

His I's, how they twinkled! his J's, how merry!
His K's were like roses, his L like a cherry

Meet St. Alphabet, the jolly star of this ingenious little book, first published over 20 years ago in a limited letterpress edition and now available once again. Under the tree or tucked into a stocking, language-lovers and children of all ages will fall in love with St. Alphabet, whose antics are guaranteed to awaken the imagination. Satisfy your craving for literary hijinks and experience the joy of hearing this classic poem reinterpreted as you revel in discovering the hidden wit in each hand-colored illustration. If you're seeking the perfect gift to encourage the writer in your life, you can't beat St. Alphabet, who exclaims, as he dashes away in his sleigh, "Happy Alphabet to all, and to all a good write!"

Poet and artist Dave Morice received his PhD in library science from the University of Iowa and continues to bring the magic of poetry to people of all ages through his work in senior centers and public schools. He is the author and illustrator of many books for children and adults, including The Dictionary of Word Play, The Adventures of Dr. Alphabet, and Poetry Comics: An Animated Anthology.
