Letters To Anyone And Everyone

Letters to Anyone and Everyone Book Cover Snails, elephants, bears, ants, crickets, and squirrels write whimsical letters to one another.  Twenty-three little stories are are included.  Some are humorous, like The Elephant who cannot keep his balance and The Bear who just wants to eat cake.  Some are philosophical, like The Squirrel who wonders about the table and writes a letter to a letter.  Tellegen’s world of the imagination is perfectly complemented by Ahlberg’s delicate watercolors.  A ribbon bookmark adds to the charm of this little book. mjw
