Steampunk is a popular topic currently and who can resist the beauty of the articles of Victorian-ish clothing matched with manners and household and work items that are beautiful as well as usable. In Professor Whiskerton Presents Steampunk ABC, we have a beautifully illustrated alphabet book that will appeal to adults who love the idea of steampunk and to children who like to build things as the alphabet has illustrations of such things as bolts, levels, monkey wrenches, valves, and my favorite, a zeppelin.
Each illustration show Professor Whiskerton and his assistant, Percy, dressed appropriately for Victorian mice who are not afraid of taking their own ideas and building the item they dreamed up.
Lovely colors, clear drawings to illustrate the letter of the alphabet, all with a bit of whimsy.
