Praise for "Alphablock"
"All the parts together make an appealing and fun way for youngsters to interact with the alphabet, and for slightly older children to enjoy the clever artwork."
--"School Library Journal," starred review
"The straightforward vocabulary, cheery vintage-style graphics, and neat incorporation of cut-out letters make for a sharply designed package."
"With a pleasing, retro feel, Peskimo's art uses bold colors in a slightly muted hue and the weathered look of woodblock prints... A visually captivating delight for careful little ones."
"While it's graphically sophisticated enough to please adults, little children can happily flip through this book on their own."
--"The New York Times"
"The baby, toddler or nursery-schooler who tears the gift wrapping off Christopher Franceschelli's "Alphablock" may think that she has just opened a toy, for how lively and tactile the thing in her hands will be."
--"The Wall Street Journal"
