Children’s Book Review: Operation Alphabet

This was possibly one of the most exciting packages BG ever received and it came from the Ministry of Letters.

I love the whole concept of this. The Ministry of Letters is a secret government agency that makes up the words in the country.  They also have the 'Special Alphabet Service' (SAS) that help with any emergency and they are the heroes of the book Operation Alphabet.

BG was sent a very special package that contained the book though she won’t tell me what else was in it, apparently it’s a secret!


The book itself is really good. It’s a nice heavy book with lots of great illustration; I really love the retro feel to it.

The story is of a little boy called Charlie who needs to learn the Alphabet and how the SAS help him learn with with songs and stories.

BG really enjoyed it and even through it is aimed at 5-8 year olds really got into it.

This would make a great gift and is ideal for a child who is learning the alphabet.

It’s available from Amazon for £6.37 which is great price for this hardback book.

Visit the site www.ministryofletters.com as they have some great little features on their for you children to do.

I will leave you will a great video they have made!
