The cupboards are empty, as is the fridge. Thus begins the adventure of two hungry kids as they try to figure out what’s for lunch. But there’s nothing ordinary about the feast they are cooking up. From letter-picking in their backyard to browsing through the alphabet at the local market, from an expedition through the woods and up a mountain to sharing their finds with friends, the two chefs and letter foragers set out to create a feast of consonants that’s seasoned with both vowels and wit that keeps you turning the page.
With its comic-style layout, Letter Lunch makes literal a love of language, food, and art. The wordless narrative incorporates how some letters can be found everywhere, while others require a bit of extra work to track down. An innovative approach to the alphabet — and, not so incidentally, to preparing a meal, from grocery shopping to washing the dishes — adults and children will delight in this clever approach to what, at first glance, seems commonplace.
