An engaging caper, and an ideal book to introduce young children to the joys of reading.

Welcome to England’s Ministry of Letters, the place where all the words in the world―in books, magazines, newspapers, road signs, posters, and more―start their lives, and from which the letters coordinate their critical missions to help children learn the alphabet. This book tells the story of Charlie Foxtrot, who starts school and finds mastering the alphabet confusing. The members of the Ministry’s Special Alphabet Service set off on a mission to Scotland to help Charlie and to open his mind to the power of letters and words. The charming artwork, reminiscent of classic children’s book illustrations from the 1950s and 1960s, combines with the witty text to bring the characters of the alphabet to life. 50 full-color illustrations

My 7 year old son loves this book. The story is really cute and the illustrations are very retro- I had to look several times back at the copyright date to check because it looks like an older book. Love it!

This is a beautiful book and a great story for 4-6 year olds. The quality of the paper and illustrations are superb. A wonderful addition to any child's library.

The book was about a boy who needed help with learning his alphabet and the Ministry of Letters helped him.

I think other kids would like this book because it is a great book with great pictures and it's funny! Charlie Foxtrot is a great name.

My favorite part is when they first told us about all the letters working in the factory. My other favorite part was the pictures. I like how much detail they put in and that they used scribble scrabble to colour in things like the desk and the hair. I also love the pink apostrophe!

I think every age would like it! Even grown ups! And boys and girls would both like it. I think the agent who took down the message and sped off on roller skates should be a girl.

Operation Alphabet, written by Al MacCuish is a most creative story about a boy named, Charlie, who does not pay attention in class, and then experiences the dreaded "Alphabet-Heebiegeebies." He so desperately needs to learn his alphabet to pass a test and tries hard to study. But it's no use. The mysterious "Ministry of Letters," which is housed inside a red post box next to London's Big Ben, quickly comes to his aid. The Ministry works hard to rush a top-secret delivery to Charlie's house that just might help him learn what he needs to know. In addition to its very original storyline, this book is wonderfully designed by Jim Bletas and marvelously illustrated by self-taught artist, Luciano Lozano. He has a style that is most whimsical and fun. To top it all off, this is one of the sturdiest and most high-quality-produced books I've ever read. The book's jacket can be reversed and used as an alphabet poster.
Sorryyy
My 4 year old loves to be read to and know most letter names and sounds but generally finds the alphabet not so interesting. My son loved the story and has been writing out letters so that he can turn them into characters like in the book. Tops for motivation!!

Operation Alphabet is a superb book that is a real joy to get lost inside. It is wonderful for children but also has a classic feel, and in fact made me nostalgic. It seamlessly weaves narrative with the alphabet and is full of characters that children will really love. The illustrations are marvelous and this book would be just at home on the coffee table as the bedside table.

This book is quite outstanding.
I have a rather boisterous young daughter who often finds it impossible to settle down at bed time, preferring instead to jump, chase, sing, paint or scoot. The Ministry of lettres however has captured her imagination in such a way that bedtimes have become a time of great equilibrium as she is whisked away into a world where Lettres can talk, walk and even have there own HQ. Quite rite!
This book should be a standard issue to all children of two years and up, chapeaux to you Mr MacCuish.
I loved walking my three year old through Charlie Foxtrot's caper. Made me wish I was a kid again. Ministry of Letters is the tricycle to Harry Potter's BMX. Operation Alphabet (Ministry of Letters)
