"Elsewhere at home" wants to bring the letters closer to our big and small readers. Each creature represents a letter of the alphabet. Every creature's character and personality is described in a poem, which features the specific letter as often as possible. But "Elsewhere at home" is not an alphabet textbook in the classic sense. The creatures in this book wish for the readers to take the time and delve into their stories and environments. They hope for you to live in their world for a bit, maybe even think of a couple of adventures to have together. If anybody discovers their love for reading... that would not be too bad either.
Auteur Iwon Blum:Iwon Blum studied scientific illustrations at the Zurich School of Arts and graduated in 2001 with this book as her dissertation. The idea for this book came from the unpleasant experience in her primary class, being confused by these hostile letters, and thus refusing to learn how to read and write. Only later when the little Iwon had accepted all 26 letters as her friends, did reading and writing become fun. So much fun to the point that big Iwon works as a journalist and gets to play with the alphabet all the time.Margo Vera:Margo Vera has found her love for poetry in early stages of her life. The rhymes, the grooves, all the different kinds of stories packed into a little melody of words. As she came across Iwon's 26 little big friends, she could not resist to give them a world in English. Now those little creatures are Margo's friends too. Thank you, Iwon.
