I decided my best bet for writing a book was to write one in which 3/4 of the words were already written for me (e.g. “A is for (blank)”). But, not wanting to be totally lazy, I illustrated the book and wrote rhyming text to go along with each letter. I hope you like it.

Francis S. Poesy* has been very fond of letters ever since he was a young lad. He credits the alphabet with getting him through school, and he finds it to be essential to his success as a writer. He recommends using the alphabet to everyone he meets.


Mr. Poesy was born on Slipshod Island off the northwest coast of Ireland in 1961. He lived there with his family until the island was reclaimed by the sea in 1969. He attended the St. Blathmac Monastary School which was well known for producing many great writers over the centuries. While he only studied at St. Blathmac's for a few short years, Mr. Poesy credits the school with providing him with a strong literary foundation and proudly considers himself to be one in a long line of Slipshod writers.

*Francis S. Poesy is a figment of Tim Canny's imagination, which some, including a number of his elementary school teachers, have characterized as "overactive". Tim writes children's books under the name Francis S. Poesy. He lives in Pennsylvania with his wife, two sons, and his daughter's dog. His favorite shape is the triangle.

"This is a delightful alphabet book. (And as a parent of three and a former K, 1st, 2nd grade teacher, I've seen lots of them.) The choice of objects for each letter is creative and the book has high quality illustrations." - Five star Amazon review

"This is a fun ABC book, suitable for kids from toddler age through kindergarten or first grade. Older kids would read it just because it's entertaining. Some of the pictures and clues have a slight scientific slant." - Five star Amazon review

"My two young boys LOVED this version of the alphabet. My five year old was especially excited when D was for Donut :-)" - Five star Amazon review

"A Rather Round Alphabet, promotes recognition of both the alphabet letters and some everyday objects, drawing attention to the particular shape of roundness. It also has a wonderful cadence of rhythm and rhyme. I would recommend this book to parents and grandparents of very young toddlers to preschool children that want to instill a love of reading and appreciation of the English language." - Five star Amazon review
