Olivera makes a polished and assured debut with this aeronautical alphabet book whose crisp, clean digital images, while not explicitly retro, still evoke a Pan Am era chicness. Most spreads feature two well-paired letters/words at sea under a pale yellow sky, an aircraft carrier covers both "Cc is for carrier" and "Dd is for deck." Olivera also includes glancing references to aviation history ("Kk is for Kitty Hawk"), navigation, and interplanetary travel: in a humorous rural night scene, a grazing cow is shown wide-eyed under the beam of a UFO. On the facing page, for V, the cow has "vanished." Ages 3 7.
