Review:
With the help of computer-graphics artist Paul Colin, illustrator Vladimir Radunsky has given the inspired nonsense-verse of Edward Lear, the 19th century English writer and illustrator, a decidedly ultra-modern look. Using a deft amalgam of collage and his own drawings against brightly colored backdrops, Radunsky captures the viewer's rapt attention for listening to Lear's mesmeric improvisations on each letter of the alphabet. Take "F" for example: "F" was once a little fish, Fishy Wishy Squishy Fishy in a dishy Little fish." Be prepared for countless requests to read this and the others again. What a painless way to master the alphabet!
