Over the past 35 years, Washington, DC area illustrator Patricia Raine has occasionally taken a recess from the complex, grown-up world of political caricature and visual editorial commentary to create richly-imagined paintings for the infinitely sweeter and simpler world of children. The Alekizou is the delightful result of one of those rare interludes.
The Alekizou is a mischievous creature. Find out what happens when he gobbles up the vowels from all the books in the library. Then help him fix the terrible mess using just your fingers! An inspirational literacy adventure that Dr. Seuss himself would enjoy.
