 Dahlov Ipcar's Farmyard Alphabet is Maine artist and author Dahlov Ipcar's first board book, pairing her fresh, original verses with timeless illustrations from eleven of her books, many of which are out of print. From apples and barns to vegetables and wood stoves, both the unique text and bold, bright artwork celebrate farm life in Ipcar's inimitable style. Strong proud horses, fat happy pigs and playful kittens will charm toddlers, and Ipcar fans will be delighted to see illustrations from The Wild Whirlwind, Bright Barnyard and Black and White, as well as those from eight other books.
