This alphabet book incorporates the letters into their own little story, as an opening poems explains that the 26 letters went on holiday together and to find out what they saw. 12 pages, with yellow card wrappers, print on one side of page only. There are six full pages of brilliant color illustration, which depict the scenes of the letters. There are four little scenes per illustrated page, with the letter they represent in the upper corner. It is paired with a full page of text, four letters a page, with a few rhyming lines each. The letters "Q" and "R", "V" and "W", as well as "X" "Y" and "Z" respectively share scene. Around the text, acting as a boarder, are varying Bible quotations as well.   "F fed the Fowls: how eager they came/Clucking for food: it would fill me with shame/ If children, forgetting themselves did the same" "X, Y, and Z, were sorry that they/ Had found little to see, to hear, or to say;/ But hoped to do better the next holiday" Measures 10 1/2" x 9" .  OCLC - none (October 2018).
