Professor Whiskerton Presents Steampunk ABC by Lisa Falkenstern (Two Lions 15 April 2014 / $17.99) - Product Description: In Professor Whiskerton Presents Steampunk ABC, two mice dressed in Victorian clothing use gadgets and found objects--each starting with a different letter of the alphabet--to build a fantastic steampunk surprise. A is for anvil; M is for monkey wrench; P is for periscope. Steampunk-inspired elements abound on every page as the mice make use of ordinary household items--spoons, a sardine tin, life-size toothbrushes--to create the letters and, ultimately, the book's surprise at the end. Young readers will delight in the mice characters and their fantastical creations, while parents will enjoy the celebration of steampunk--making old things new again, the retro/futuristic details, and the emphasis on creativity. With standout illustrations that are both charming and intricate, children and parents alike will want to pore over this story again and again.
