A’s Auto accelerates to a sprint, but what about J’s jetting Jalopy and R’s red-hot Roadster?
In the Alphabet Grand Prix, all twenty-six letters hop into their respective vehicles to vie for the honor of being the first to make it through the Grand Prix finish line. This colorful adventure includes animals and autos that perfectly match the personified letters through playful literary techniques.
Andy Cox’s use of rhyme, rhythm, and alliteration pace this picture book alongside Richard Kinsey’s detailed and delightful depictions of letters A through Z – with their accompanying autos and animals – in their attempts to out-perform each other over the road. The Alphabet Grand Prix is a fun teaching tool that helps introduce letters to children while keeping them engaged with vibrant illustrations at the turn of each page. Young readers will love to follow the stimulating story to discover which competitor will win as the checkered flag crowns the champ.

About the Author
Andy Cox recognized the importance of letters at a young age. Andy's professional experience has led him to employment in offices, on the beach, on boats, and at a hot stand, but he still finds work most rewarding when putting letters together to create engaging stories. Andy lives in Long Beach, California with his wife and young son, all of whom enjoy reading, embarking upon adventures, swimming, and building forts. He hopes this book will encourage young readers to further pursue letters and words on their own and eventually discover the delights of reading for themselves.
