The Book of Shadowboxes

A Story of the ABC’s

by Laura L. Seeley

Welcome to an enchanting world of shadowboxes, where the ABCs spring magically to life.

Each shadowbox is filled with richly colorful creatures, objects, and people drawn in an intricately engaging style. From smiling acorns and alphabet stew to zany old zeroes with nothing to do, the vibrant illustrations and bouncing verses delight and instruct. Shadow, the reader’s guide through the shadowboxes, follows each letter and poses an intriguing mystery to solve. At the back of the book is a key to all the other hidden treasures collected in the shadowboxes.

A challenging, find-the-object book that will keep children interested long after they’ve mastered their ABCs, The Book of Shadowboxes is a gift to be handed down and treasured for generations.
