Synopsis: Mountains are an impressive sight anywhere in the world but those of the western mountain region of North America offer riches that are truly unique. This lavishly illustrated picture book presents snowcapped peaks, emerald lakes, tall pines and magnificent maples, and a range of birds and animals that will fill readers of all ages with wonder.

The treasures and mysteries of nature are depicted in twenty-six full-color paintings, each with a line of alliterative text. Objects that begin with that letter of the alphabet are waiting to be discovered in each illustration. Complete with detailed information about each setting painted, this is a visually and mentally stimulating experience – from A to Z.

From the Back Cover: “Kiss is an established wildlife artist. His landscapes and animals are attractive and accurate...Kiss adds many features to his paintings that expand the usefulness, perhaps even the play value of the book.”
Book Review Digest

“...[a] lavishly illustrated alphabet book...Wildlife artist Andrew Kiss offers 26 spectacular mountain perspectives. A real WOW!”
Emergency Librarian

“The illustrations are magnificent and contain a wealth of information without being cluttered.”
Canadian Children’s Literature

“Bold, rich colours and perspectives and lyrical language combine to create an exquisite experience... Andrew Kiss draws viewers inside the scene and transports them.”
Resource Links

“The quality of the paintings and text could each stand alone...The love of wildlife and the outdoors is obvious in both the paintings and the text.”
CM Magazine

“Kiss’s full-page paintings of mountain scenery are visually stunning.”
Winnipeg Free Press

“Andrew Kiss’s paintings perfectly capture the majesty of the mountains.”
Owen Sound Sunday Times

“A delightful, beautiful book...”
Christian Library Journal
