The cupboards are empty, as is the fridge. Thus begins the adventure of a hungry brother and sister as they try to figure out what’s for lunch. But there’s nothing ordinary about the feast the siblings of Letter Lunch are cooking up. From letter-picking in their backyard to browsing through the alphabet at the local market, from an expedition through the woods and up a mountain to sharing their finds with friends, the two chefs and letter foragers set out to create a feast of consonants that’s seasoned with both vowels and wit that keeps you turning the page. With its comic-style layout, Letter Lunch makes literal a love of language, food, and art. The wordless narrative shows how some letters can be found everywhere, while others require a bit of extra work to track down. An innovative approach to the alphabet and, not so incidentally, to preparing a meal, from grocery shopping to washing the dishes Letter Lunch will delight adults and children with its clever approach to what, at first glance, seems commonplace.
