G is for Gnome

3-5 yrs Picture Books (Hardback)

From Aubergine to Zemi, this whimsical, non-phonetic tour of the English alphabet features the intricate quilts of Virginia artist Eleanor Labiosa.

This book started on a night shift at an outback Australian mine in 2009. Will was using the phonetic radio (Alpha, Bravo) to talk to his teammates in large mining trucks when he challenged himself to find a quirky alternative. The first dozen letters were solved quickly, but for the rest, he needed help! In 2014, Will was joined in this international word search by his now-wife Katie and Katie's family friend, Eleanor. Will and Katie hope these pages inspire you to explore different sounds from different cultures and imagine new words.

PS: Have you seen the shape of the gnome's fishing pole and line? Eleanor has hidden each letter within that letter's quilt. Can you find all the hidden letters?
