About the Author
Charley Harper was an American illustrator who worked from his studio in the woods near Cincinnati, Ohio, until his death in 2007, at the age of eighty-four. He is beloved for his delightful, graphic, and often-humorous illustrations of nature, animals, insects, and people alike. Charley liked to say that when he paints a bird, he doesn't count all the feathers in the wings he just counts the wings. Minimal realism, he called it, and his unique and precise style continue to resonate and inspire his admirers. --This text refers to an alternate Board book edition.

You can tell the late Charley Harper loved animals, as his affection for them jumps off the page. There is so much personality! In D is for Dog, the smiling spaniel has dirt on his nose and legs, and you can almost see him panting. In I is for Iguana, two giant lizards battle for a captive tiny pig, swinging their tails and rearing up. Q is for Quail shows whirring wings on a fat and happy bird.
The inside covers show a collage of dozens of other Harper animals, most of which are not used in the book.
The board book itself is a little more sturdy than most. It will hold up well.
Charley Harper's ABC's is an outstanding way to introduce fine artwork to young children. Other good choices include Zen Ties and Walt Disney's Cinderella.
The left molecule is CH3NH2 - Methylamine, the simplest primary amine.
The center molecule is NH2CH2COOH - Glycine, the smallest of the 20 amino acids.
The right molecule is CH3CHO - Acetaldehyde, which can condense with cyanide and ammonia to give, after hydrolysis, the amino acid Alanine, which is the next largest amino acid.
Simple organic molecules like these are thought to have been formed by lightning or hydrothermal vents, and to have been the building blocks of life in the waters of the ancient Earth.
Not the sort of thing you'd expect to find in an ABC book!
There is something interesting or cute in nearly every picture. Harper's unmistakable style makes the alphabet enjoyable.
