The ABC of Mr. Clutterbuck
(Herra Hakkaraisen aakkoset)


The ABC rooster has been given a tough task: how to teach that tireless sleepwalker Mr Clutterbuck the rudiments of the alphabet?

To begin with it looks challenging, then problematic, and later even an impossible mission, but the rooster’s determination is rewarded and in the end even Clutterbuck knows his letters.

The ABC of Mr. Clutterbuck goes through the alphabet from A to Ö in the best possible didactic manner, in other words using humour and imagination galore. In addition to showing the shapes of the letters, large and small, each page contains an amusing picture and text to go with the letter concerned. Some of the illustrations will be familiar from earlier books by Mauri Kunnas, while others are quite new.
