Written for ages 4-8, the approachable antagonist, the Alphabet Thief Who Stole the Vowels, hatches a plan to entice and capture all the vowels and whisk them away to a land far more enchanted.

From the mind of elementary school teacher Claudia Villarreal and illustrated by Michael Koch, Villarreal’s book is full of charm, humor and innocence in the style of Dr. Suess.

Both parents and children will enjoy the Alphabet Thief’s story punctuated with a thoughtful and important message.
