About the Author
Corinna Luyken is the author/illustrator of three previous picture books, The Tree in Me (an NCTE Notable Poetry Book and Indie Bestseller), My Heart (a New York Times Best Seller), and The Book of Mistakes (which the Wall Street Journal called "sublime"), and the illustrator of several other books, including Patchwork, Adrian Simcox Does Not Have a Horse, Something Good, and Nothing in Common. She lives in Western Washington, near the Salish Sea, with her family.
"The illustrations are the real standout here, fluid and soft, a pale pastel palette setting the tone. All the people are dressed in white, allowing their unique features to stand out. The book's greatest strength is its diversity--characters vary by ability, age, skin tone, and size, with a wide range of body types on display . . . an ode to the beauty of the human body." --Kirkus

"In a pictorial abecedarian whose visuals utilize the human form, Luyken draws white-clad figures with various abilities, body types, and skin tones contorting themselves into letters of the Latin alphabet . . . this illustrative work may well inspire similar movements." --Publishers Weekly

"In a message of acceptance and body positivity, this alphabet book encourages people of all ages and abilities to join in forming letters with their bodies. The soft illustrations include people with a variety of body shapes, ages, and skin and hair colors, plus people using wheelchairs and other assistive devices. This book also would be a natural to incorporate with movement programs for children." --Booklist
