ABOUT THE BOOK
Take a walk through ABCity, staying on sidewalks or paths through an intricate maze taking you from page to page past all 26 letters of the alphabet. In each of 13 bustling mazes, look for cleverly hidden objects that correspond to each of the letters hidden within the streets and signs. From airplanes and ambulances to zebras and zippers, the maze weaves through the city as you help Chris and his dog Rusty find their way from A to Z. Answer keys are provided in the back, along with a large, two-sided, foldout poster of the city—one side to display and the other side to color. Jump-start your child’s learning while having fun walking this unique, one-of-a-kind city maze designed to help improve fine motor, problem-solving, and visual-perceptual skills!
- One continuous maze made from 13 individual mazes, each featuring two letters of the alphabet
- Each maze contains a seek-and-find game designed to entertain, stimulate, and challenge
- Final spread shows the entire ABCity
Created for puzzle-loving kids, the maze contains some complicated tricks that will have young readers having fun seeing how it was done at the end. It’s mind-bending, super-challenging, and highly visual fun for the entire family.
ABOUT ROXIE MUNRO
Roxie was born in Texas, and grew up in southern Maryland, by the Chesapeake Bay. At the age of six, she won first prize in a county-wide contest for a painting of a bowl of fruit. She has been a working artist all her life, for a while freelancing in Washington DC as a television courtroom artist. It was great training for life drawing, concentration under pressure, and making deadlines. Clients included CBS, the Washington Post, and the Associated Press. Fourteen of her paintings have been published as covers of The New Yorker magazine.
She also creates oils, watercolors, prints, and drawings, primarily cityscapes, which are exhibited widely in the US in galleries and museums. Roxie’s work is in numerous private, public, and corporate collections.
Roxie Munro studied at the University of Maryland, the Maryland Institute College of Art (Baltimore), earned a BFA in Painting from the University of Hawaii, attended graduate school at Ohio University (Athens), and received a Yaddo Fellowship in Painting. She lectures in museums, schools, libraries, conferences, and teaches in workshops.
Many oils and watercolors are views from the roof of her sky-lighted loft studio in Long Island City, New York, just across the East River from her home in mid-Manhattan. Roxie is married to the Swedish writer/photographer, Bo Zaunders ( www.bozaunders.com).
