Look up, look down, look all around, The Alphabet’s all over town. It’s hidden in the scenery - The letters of the A-B-C!

This is a unique photographic alphabet book for infants and early readers, featuring letters of the alphabet as found in the details of Melbourne’s architecture.

Alphabet City Melbourne, a board book for Melbourne bubs by Maree Coote. This clever little book helps your littlies learn the A-B-C through shapes and letter-forms found in Melbourne. Affectionately dubbed 'Son of The Melbourne Book', this little book offers Coote's unique sense of place and belonging to yet another readership group. As well as fun and games in identifying the shapes of letters, there's also fun in eventually seeing them in-situ in the city.
