A Hebridean Alphabet

This is a beautifully conceived picture flat in which Debi Gliori describes and illustrates all kinds of things you might see over the course of a single day in the Hebrides. Inspired by the landscape, seascape, weather, animals and birds, this is not simply an exquisite alphabet book, but also a wonderful celebration of some of the most magnificent scenery in Britain.

Debi Gliori is well known for her picture books and her novels for children and has been shortlisted for many major prizes, including the Kate Greenaway Award (twice) and the Scottish Arts Council Award. She published her first book in 1990 and has published so many successful books since that she has lost count, including No Matter What, The Trouble with Dragons, Stormy Weather, The Scariest Thing of All and Dragon Loves Penguin.
