HEEEEELLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! There’s a lot of buzz and chatter going on in the Hinterland Harmony tree house! I heard Shanook and Kakela telling everyone that KLeighE’s A Journey Through Alphabet Land book that came in the mail last Friday is looking FANTABULOUS! AAAAAAANNND……………wait for it…………….wait for it……………if all the buttons and knobs have been pushed correctly on KLeighE’s acorn computer………..IT’S GOING TO BE RELEASED NOW!!!!! WOOHOOOOO!!!!

This is a grand milestone for us in Hinterland Harmony, because KLeighE has had quite the time trying to get the printing settings correct.

Want to do the happy dance with us?

Shake it, shake it, with your arms in the air,

Wiggle it, wiggle it, and slide from here to there,

Spin it, spin it, round and round,

‘til you get dizzy and fall down!



A little bit about the book:

A Journey Through Alphabet Land was originally A Journey Through Your ABC’s that I wrote and created in 2006. It used to be a regular story but I have changed it to a rhyming story, as I wanted to challenge myself. Since 2006 I have taught myself Photoshop and have become more adept in using the software. So, I decided to recreate the book and instead of a plain white background, I envisioned a land where a boy and girl dragonfly would visit to practice their letters of the alphabet. I scanned all the colored papers from a package of construction paper to my computer. Some I magically adjusted in Photoshop to get that perfect color I wanted that wasn’t offered in the package, but I still managed to maintain the texture I wanted for this book. I have added some new creatures and objects, and updated some of the original art with this magical tool, called a clipping mask, to cover the old construction paper with new vibrant paper. I love the continuity of the pages. It’s as if you’re flying through Alphabet Land’s territory and learning all about what and who resides in this magical land.

This is Shanook and Kakela! They are the narrators of A Journey Through Alphabet Land.
