    A children’s book by Dick Bruna that is meant to teach the alphabet. Each spread consists of a lowercase letter and an illustration of something that starts with that letter. Like most of Bruna’s children’s books of that period it is set in Mercator.

    Peculiar is that instead of ‘y’, the Dutch diphthong ‘ij’ is used.
