Before she became a Caldecott medallist, Mary Azarian was a teacher in one of Vermont's last one-room schoolhouses. In the late 1970s, the state board of education commissioned her to create 'a farmer's alphabet', a series of bold red-and-black woodcut prints featuring the 26 letters, A to Z, and depicting scenes from Vermont life.

Now gathered in book form, printed in two colours on beautiful paper, these striking woodcuts give us a child's-eye view of rural New England - from Apple, Barn, and Cow to aX, Yawn, and Zinnia - a homey, large-as-life world that readers of every age will want to inhabit. No M for McDonalds in Azarian's world: only Maple Sugar.
