About this title

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

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
